President Biden signs $1.9 trillion relief bill

President Biden signed the $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief package, the American Rescue Plan Act, on Thursday.

HANYS is grateful for the strong leadership of Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer (D-NY), Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) and the entire New York congressional delegation who worked to secure $350 billion for state and local governments — a top priority for HANYS in Washington. These critical funds will help the state mitigate its significant budget gap, which puts the state’s Medicaid program at risk.
