((You can see this is a family event weve orchestrated the children
NARR: With the Oval Office sounding more like a nursery, the President unveiled a NEW plan for NEW families not only giving working parents the option to take time off to care for a new baby, but getting paid for it too -- All of it starting as early as next year.

SOT/CLINTON

9:27:15 We oughta set a goal that all parents can take the time they need with their families, without losing the income they need to support them.
NARR:
Under the new Labor Department regulations, States would be allowed to dip into their unemployment coffers to pay for the program. But it would be voluntary, and flexible, meaning the programs would likely vary from state to state or may not be offered at all.
GRAPHCIS:
But already, at least four -- Massachusetts, Vermont, Maryland and Washington are considering extending unemployment benefits to new parents. The Presidents executive order now gives them the framework to move ahead.

NAT/SOT


NARR:
For new parents like the Forters, the plan offers a sound option.

SOT/JONI FOERTER, NEW MOTHER

11:21:19 Anytime that you can take off with your child is money well spent.
NARR:
But there are concerns. Parents are already entitled to 12 weeks of UNPAID time off under the Family Medical Leave Act. But many dont take it because, they say, they cant afford to lose the salary.
Some worry using unemployment insurance to fill that gap, may lead to a false sense of parental security.

SOT/JONI FOERTER, NEW MOTHER

11:29:21 You cant make a decision on having a baby based on how much time you can afford to take of work!//11:28:58 If you cant afford to take 12 weeks off, you cant afford to have a baby!
COWAN ON CAM: Still, a recent study showed nearly 1 in ten people who took unpaid leave ended up on welfare during their time away from work. That already is costing states. The White House claims this would cost less, and send a better message. Lee Cowan, CBS News, the White House. ))
