The NYS Legislative session ends June 20th and we still have a chance to make S1419 law. S1419 allows access to 4-year college and other approved programs for students receiving public assistance. The Assembly passed their bill in February and we have received positive feedback from our contacts in the Senate.
The message below and phone numbers of key Senators is provided in hopes that you will call and urge them to ask that S1419 come to a vote and pass this session.
Your calls and letters do have an impact in the New York State Legislature.
On behalf of WRI, we want to thank you for your support .
Please consider contacting the Senators below as well as your own and ask senate leadership to bring S1419 to a vote.
Here is our message:
” We urge you to vote and pass S1419 into law. New York State can increase the chances of economic success for families receiving welfare by focusing on education and allowing 4-year college and other educational programs to count for work requirements. Time and again, research has shown that education is one of America’s most successful pathways out of poverty improving student’s future earning capacity.”
