Many of the members of our caucus are familiar with the joys, pains, and stresses of parenthood: we know that across the state, parents are struggling to give their children the best possible future they can. Indiana currently lacks critical support for families in the workplace: we have no statewide paid leave program, no real pregnancy accommodations, and affordable, quality childcare is almost impossible to find.
Our families are the building blocks of our own lives and our state’s future—they should always have the resources to build stable, safe, and prosperous lives in Indiana. Our caucus will be introducing bills that guarantee pregnancy accommodations, expand access to affordable pre-K and childcare, and create a paid leave program for parents and families.
Parents and kids deserve the best our state has to offer. Our caucus will work to ensure that all Hoosiers are able to provide for their children without stress.
