1199SEIU and GNYHA Respond
to New York State’s One-House Budget

March 13, 2024

“The New York State Senate and Assembly one-house budget resolutions reflect 1199SEIU and GNYHA’s most important priorities, including a crucial Medicaid reimbursement rate increase for hospitals and the elimination of Governor Hochul’s proposed health care cuts. These and other provisions would help stabilize New York’s financially struggling hospitals, strengthen the health care workforce, and help ensure that our most vulnerable communities receive the high-quality care they deserve. New York’s hospitals and caregivers are grateful to Senate Majority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins, Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie, Senate Health Chair Gustavo Rivera, Assembly Health Chair Amy Paulin, and their colleagues for these vital investments in New York’s health care system.”
