New York's Assembly has passed a series of bills intended to provide affordable child care, increase funding for child care subsidies and establish paid leave for medical emergencies, the birth or adoption of a child or to take care of a sick relative.
    
One of the bills passed Wednesday requires employers to purchase paid family leave insurance for their employees. The cost would be offset by weekly employee contribution of up to 45 cents from their paychecks.
    
The bill passed on an 84 to 40 vote and was delivered to the Senate.
    
Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver says the cost of the measures will be released in next week's Assembly budget proposal.
