IWV VP Testimony to the Connecticut Legislature Regarding H.B. 6932, an Act Concerning Paid Family and Medical Leave

That, in part, is why the overwhelming majority of businesses provide paid leave benefits to their workers, even though there is no legal requirement that they do so. Of course, there are still Americans who lack adequate paid leave time and struggle to balance the needs of their families with their jobs.

The Health Care Fight

IWV has been proud to be in the forefront of the battle against a government takeover of health care. IWV works tirelessly to highlight the consequences of government-run health care: higher health care costs, more bureaucracy, higher premiums, higher taxes, fewer job opportunities, less access to care, and lower quality of care. 



IWV enjoyed enormous success in races deemed tossup or worse, seeing opportunities in races others often dismissed as hopeless. We are proud to report a 91% success rate (11-1) in our major campaign initiatives over the last four years.
