300 faith leaders have signed a clergy letter in support of the Health Working Families Act.
ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Supporters of requiring paid sick leave in Maryland will be praying for the sick.
They are hosting a day of prayer in Annapolis on Thursday afternoon in front of the Maryland State House.
They will be highlighting how nearly 300 faith leaders have signed a clergy letter in support of the Health Working Families Act.
Last year, the House of Delegates passed a measure to require paid sick leave, but the bill died in the state Senate. Lawmakers are trying again.
Gov. Larry Hogan also has proposed a bill.
