About the Bill: Senate Bill 135 will ensure that nearly all Californians who pay into the Paid Family Leave Program can use it without losing their jobs; that more newborns can receive individual care for their first six months of life, an essential time for early brain development; and that California’s leave laws reflect the state’s diverse, multigenerational families and caregiving needs.
