ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - The Maryland Senate has sent its bill on requiring paid sick leave over to the House of Delegates.
The Senate voted 29-18 for the measure. That's a crucial vote, because 29 are how many votes the Senate would need to override a veto from Gov. Larry Hogan, who opposes the bill.
The measure as approved by the Senate doesn't go quite as far as the House initially intended.
For one thing, it would require five paid sick days instead of seven for Maryland businesses with 15 or more employees.
