Workers' Compensation PTA Legislation Passes Both Houses!

The NY State legislature passed the Workers’ Compensation PTA bill (S2718 –A Griffo  A2116-A Zebrowski).  Passage of this bill will allow the services of a PTA to be recognized for payment under the NYS workers compensation program.  The efforts that brought this bill to passage span multiple years, multiple meetings and discussions with both internal and external stakeholders, the continuous efforts of the NYPTA leadership and its membership.  It now awaits the Governor’s signature to make this legislation law.
