"Capitol Update" piece on a proposal before the Legislature's Labor Committee that would require businesses to provide a minimum sick-leave benefit to Maine workers. The plan, which is being designed as a mandatory family leave benefit, is widely opposed by business owners. Peter Gore, a lobbyist with the Maine State Chamber of Commerce, estimates the minimum cost of the proposal at $22,000 a year for the smallest employers covered by the plan. With additional discussion of the Maine Economic Growth Council's "Measures of Growth" report for the Maine Development Foundation; and of the defeat of a measure that would eliminate the retirement offset provision of the unemployment program.
