POLL:  Do you support a new state gender pay equity law?

A push by state lawmakers to close the wage gap between men and women is gaining momentum, but it's also raising concerns from some in the business community. Will this be the year the Senate passes a gender pay equity bill and approves a law to bring more transparency to salary negotiations? Or will new wage equity laws put a burden on businesses, resulting in a chilling effect on our economy?
