Learn how I developed this project

Step 1 - Planning Phase
What problem was I trying to solve
    Paid Family leave has become an important issue that affects many US households. Today, the decision to implement this benefit is done by a state by state. So as result, it can be very confusing for citizens to track the status of Paid Family leave legislative bills in their state.
    This website was created as a Minimal Viable Product (MVP) to track upcoming Paid Family Leave in every US state. It has been DEPRECATED and only intended to be used as a comparison with Version 2
