Assembly Includes 8.5% COLA in their One House Bill

The New York State Assembly has added the 8.5% COLA to their One House Proposal.   This is also good news and a great credit to the members of the Assembly for supporting this important recognition of the community providers and the workforce.

With both the Senate and Assembly supporting an 8.5% COLA, this will put additional pressure on the Executive to fully fund the COLA.

As Yogi said, ‘It ain’t over till it’s over’   We have a long several weeks of advocacy ahead but this is certainly very helpful.
