special guests Assemblymember Phil Steck and Al Cardillo, President and CEO of the Home Care Association of New York State
After a flurry of debates and votes, the New York State legislative session came to an end. While proposals to legalize recreational marijuana and surrogacy floundered, bills that strengthen sexual harassment laws and protect against surprise medical bills passed.
But what about legislative solutions to the challenges faced by New York’s seniors and individuals with disabilities? Did lawmakers act to expand access to affordable care and resources that improve quality of life?
On June 22, Assemblymember Phil Steck made a special appearance on WGY’s Life Happens Radio to answer those questions. He joined host Lou Pierro to share a legislative wrap up that includes topics important to you, including:
Community-based care for older New Yorkers
Laws that protect you from exorbitant prescription drug costs
Efforts to make long-term care more affordable, including home care
Lou and Phil were also joined via phone by Al Cardillo, President and CEO of the Home Care Association of New York State.
