Here are highlights of legislation passed by the General Assembly in 2017. 

TAXPAYER/WORKER PROTECTION

 

  • Legislators set into motion a complete phase-out of the car tax over 6 years, with annual reporting on the fiscal impact.
  •  Lawmakers approved a 90-cent minimum wage hike over two years, making 2019 the sixth year out of seven that that the Assembly raised the minimum wage.
  • The Assembly approved a new law requiring that companies of 18 or more employees provide a minimal amount of paid sick time, and allow similar amounts of unpaid sick time without reprisal for employees at smaller firms.
