Capitol Hill Briefing: Policies That Work For Working Families

The National Center for Policy Analysis (NCPA) will sponsor a Capitol Hill briefing Tuesday, Jan. 22, 2008, to discuss five key issues critical to working families. The briefing will feature comments by NCPA's newest Distinguished Fellow, Terry Neese , co-founder of Women Impacting Public Policy, who will be spearheading an examination of how public policies impact working families and small businesses. The briefing will call for:

  • An employee benefits system that meets the needs of part-time workers and working couples;
  • Labor law that recognizes the need for a flexible work hour, especially for single parents;
  • Personal and portable health insurance and other employee benefits;
  • Health care solutions for small businesses; and
  • Tax policies that do not penalize working wives.
