POLITICS OVER GOVERNMENT PREVAILS IN SENATE COMMITTEE

MONTPELIER
(January 28, 2016): The following remarks may be attributed to Kris Jolin, NFIB
Vermont representative in response to the passage of paid leave in today’s
Senate committee:

“In spite of
being repeatedly warned that this is an incredibly dangerous mandate that will
test the limits of the small business community and ultimately result in not
only a loss of jobs in the small business sector, but an increase in the costs
of goods and services, lawmakers just couldn’t help themselves. They passed
feel good legislation without even remotely considering the economic deterrent
that this mandate will create.

“The days of
an employer being able to accommodate employees and provide flexibility in
terms of scheduling will be over for small businesses if the full Senate passes
this mandate. Instead of presenting the floor with legislation that would
empower the small business sector, our state’s largest economic engine, this
committee chose today to put politics before governing.
