An aide from Senator Tom Harkin’s office will be in Marion County tomorrow to discuss some of the senator’s ideas to improve economic security. Amy Beller will be meeting with citizens to talk about a piece of legislation called the Healthy Families Act. The proposal is a federal paid sick leave act that would allow workers to collect one hour of paid sick time for every thirty hours that they worked. The meeting takes place from 2-to-3pm on Wednesday at the Knoxville Public Library.
