During 2017, WDC advocated for two County bills. County Bill 12-16 proposed increasing the Montgomery County hourly minimum wage to $15 by 2020. The bill was approved by a 5-4 Council vote but was vetoed by County Executive Ike Leggett. County Bill 32-16 permits County employees to use their earned sick and safe leave for parental leave as well. The Bill passed by a 9-0 Council Vote and was signed into law.
