We received the following information from COPA (Coalition of Provider Associations) and wanted to pass it along to you. This is good news but we need to keep going - we need to make our voices heard and let Albany know how important the #bFair2DirectCare campaign is.
We had some wins in the Assembly and Senate one-house budgets and now we need to CALL CALL CALL to make sure that our priorities make it to the final budget!
Call the Governor at 518-474-1041 and tell him to include both the Senate and Assembly support of #bFair2DirectCare, and restoration of the COLA (Cost of Living Adjustment) and the Consumer Directed Personal Assistance Program (CDPAP) in the final budget!
Call your Senator at 518-455-2800 and your Assembly member at 518-455-4100, thank them and ask for their commitment to support #bFair2DirectCare and the restoration of the COLA and CDPAP in the final budget!
