Baselice voter poll contradicts bulk of testimony on mandatory paid sick leave

New numbers from Republican pollster Mike Baselice show widespread support for the local control issues that have become a cornerstone of the leadership’s legislative agenda this session.

The Baselice & Associates poll, commissioned by the Center for Public Policy Priorities, surveyed 801 voters across regions, political parties and income brackets. Asked to consider local control issues, 74 percent said they strongly or somewhat supported the ability of cities and counties to require private business to mandate paid sick leave days.
