  • On October 8, 2009, the House of Representatives voted to further expand exigency leave and military caregiver leave under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA). The provisions amending the FMLA were included in the Conference Report for the FY 2010 Defense Authorization (H. Rept. 111-288 to H.R. 2647). The House voted 281-146 in favor of the measure. The Senate is expected to take it up later this week. If the Senate votes in favor of the 2010 Defense Authorization, the measure will go to President Obama for his signature.
