I am urging Sen. Patty Ritchie of District 48 to vote yes to NY Health Act S4840. This health bill passed the assembly with a vote of 92 to 52 and is now in the Senate.
This bill has a long history from when it was introduced in 1992 until now. It is time that New York State lead the way in universal health care.
In a time where environmental protections are being peeled away one by one and access to affordable health care is getting more restrictive, it is imperative now more than ever that we protect our citizens in New York State with care that they deserve.
