NY Healthcare Act Resolution

May 23, 2017

Whereas the New York Assembly voted to pass the NY Healthcare Act that provides universal health care coverage for everyone in our state

Whereas state Senate Republicans and some members of the Independent Democratic Conference are blocking the bill from even coming to a vote in the Senate

Whereas the Saugerties Democratic Committee believes that health care is a human right

Whereas the Saugerties Democratic committee believes that healthcare should be both accessible and affordable for all state residents regardless of their health status or ability to pay

Be it resolved that Governor Andrew Cuomo and Jeff Klein leader of the Independent Democratic Conference should strongly support the NY Healthcare Act and demand an immediate vote in the Senate

Respectfully Submitted
Lanny Walter

Saugerties Democratic Committee, Chair

The Honorable Andrew M. Cuomo
Governor of New York State
NYS State Capitol Building
Albany, NY 12224

Senator Jeff Klein
