The bill creates the family and medical leave insurance (FAMLI)

in the department of labor and employment to provide partial wage
replacement benefits to an eligible individual who takes leave from work:
  • To care for a new child or a family member with a serious
health condition;

duty service.
Each employee and employer in the state will pay one-half the cost

into the family and medical leave insurance fund, and family and medical
leave benefits are paid to eligible individuals from the fund. The division

considered state revenues for purposes of the taxpayer's bill of rights
(TABOR).
