Healthcare is a top issue for New Yorkers. Why? Because too many of us -- whether we are insured or not -- simply can’t afford it. We just lived through a pandemic that laid bare how terrible it is for people to tie health insurance to their employment. Under-funded public and safety net hospitals are overstretched while they care for the sickest and most vulnerable patients.
We need the Senate and the Assembly to take on the New York Health Act before the end of the legislative session in June. Despite thousands of calls, tweets and emails to the Senate Majority leader, the New York Health Act didn’t make it on the agenda for the final Senate Health Committee meeting of the year.
We need leadership to move the bill before June 10 - the last day of the legislative session. We need the bill to move through the Assembly committees and to the floor for a vote. Senate side - the bill needs go through the Rules Committee and then to the floor.
Send a message NOW state legislators, Senate Majority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins and Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie that we want a vote on the New York Health Act before the end of session.
