Senator Tom Harkin will have a representative in Marion County today. Amy Beller is scheduled to talk about the Healthy Families Act with local residents. The proposal is a federal paid sick leave act. It would allow workers to collect one hour of paid sick time for every thirty hours they worked. For a person working a 40-hour week, that would be nearly nine days per year. The meeting takes place from 2-to-3pm at the Knoxville Public Library.
