Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan on Thursday vetoed a bill that would have required employers to provide paid sick leave.
Mr. Hogan, a Republican, called the measure “a deeply flawed, job-killing paid leave bill,” saying “studies show it would cost thousands of jobs and billions of dollars in lost economic activity.”
He said his administration had offered a compromise that would have given employers incentives for offering paid sick leave, but that idea was nixed by the Democrat-controlled General Assembly.
“Our administration fully supports paid sick leave benefits for Marylanders, but we cannot and will not support this job-killing bill passed by the legislature, which would hurt the very workers that they are pretending to want to help,” Mr. Hogan said.
