#FundExcludedWorkersGovernor Cuomo and the State Legislature have agreed to tax hikes on the wealthiest New Yorkers as budget negotiations drag out well past the April 1st deadline. But the push to #FundExcludedWorkers – provide relief to those who have been unable to receive federal or state aid – hit a snag.
There are three Westchester Assembly Members who we need to ask to #FundExcludedWorkers before budget negotiations wrap:
Climate, Jobs, and Justice Town hall with Sen. Schumer
Senator Schumer will be joined by other local and federal leaders to discuss how we’re going to pass ambitious climate justice legislation on both a state and federal level, including the THRIVE Act.
