    1986

    1986: Dodd authors and introduces his landmark Family Medical Leave Act, which would provide up to 12 weeks of unpaid leave to allow workers to care for a sick family member or a new child without worrying about losing their job. Dodd continues to fight for its passage for the next seven years. The bill eventually passes both houses of Congress twice, is vetoed by President George H.W. Bush, and finally becomes law after President Clinton assumes office.

    Dodd successfully negotiates the release of American Eugene Hasenfus with Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega to allow Hasenfus to testify before congressional committees on the Iran Contra Affair.

    Senator Dodd cosponsors a bill amending the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, which requires that attorneys collecting debts on behalf of clients be subject to the Fair Debt Collections Practices Act. The bill is signed into law on July 9.
