Congress reaches tentative agreement giving federal workers paid family leave, creating Space Force

E-mail Print PDF
Famly Leave ActRepublican and Democratic leaders in Congress have come to a tentative bipartisan agreement that would give federal employees 12 weeks of paid family leave and establish the "Space Force" as a new addition to the U.S. military, according to a source familiar with the negotiations.

The deal was made as part of negotiations for the defense authorization bill, which could come up for a vote as early as next week, the source said. The deal is only tentative and could change before becoming law.

The agreement, if passed, would mark one of the biggest deals President Donald Trump has cut with Congress while also checking off what has become a key priority for his administration ahead of the 2020 election: establishing a "Space Force" under the Air Force — something that would be attached to Trump's legacy in the White House.
