Assembly Bill A9667A passed in the New York State Assembly
Our efforts in Albany on 10 May, 2016 have once again yielded immediate and positive results with the Assembly passing this bill within 24 hours.
Thanks to all LI TRIO volunteers, especially Margaret O’ and Barbara G. who are incredibly patient and effective legislative volunteers! Great work on the part of all of our friends at NYAD and LONY. I enjoyed scheduling and attending our meetings with members of the New York State Assembly and The New York State Senate.
Our Call to Action is here.
You can help by writing to Governor Cuomo so he will know how important it is to sign the bill.
The donor designation will be included in the Health Insurance Exchange forms in New York State once this bill is signed by the governor.
The Senate passed this bill as well.
