Your Participation at Advocacy Day is Vitally Important

Update: March 7 Programming Has Been Cancelled Due To Weather

Governor Andrew Cuomo recently painted a dire fiscal picture for New York State, saying: “We have federal and economic challenges never experienced before. . . In the short term, we face a $4 billion deficit and $2 billion in cuts in federal aid . . . .

While the Governor's proposed budget shows a continued commitment to healthcare, it is clear that healthcare is at risk in this state budget debate as proposals are considered and potentially rejected or modified to address significant state deficits and the continuation of federal threats.

We will face intense competition for limited resources, and election year pressures heighten the complexity of the budget debate.

Now is the time for our collective advocacy in Albany. We will need a strong presence at Advocacy Day, and your participation is vital to this effort.

We encourage you to bring executives, key staff, and trustees from your organization.
