Gillibrand has been pressing the issue for years. In April 2015 in Troy, Gillibrand cited a different poll conducted by the Small Business Majority, which found 6 in 10 entrepreneurs in New York state supported a publicly administered family and medical leave program.

    This is an important issue for small businesses. We are working hard to get paid family leave passed in Colorado. The surprising thing is that the opposition is coming from Business groups that should support it if they were really representing the majority of their members. I admire Gillibrand and the work she has done on this topic.
