The recent actions of Gov. Cuomo, Senate Majority Leader Stewart-Cousins, Assembly Speaker Heastie and all members of the legislature demonstrate their commitment to healthcare. They give all New Yorkers confidence that the life-saving work our local hospitals, health systems and other providers do every day in communities throughout the state will be supported in the 2019-2020 state budget. This support is especially important at a time when the federal government is proposing major healthcare funding cuts.
However, the budget is not yet final and our advocacy is not over. Please continue to remind your legislators that any cuts to healthcare are unacceptable.
