AARP NY’s End of Legislative Session Review

AARP New York’s state legislative priorities include safeguarding New Yorkers’ access to quality, affordable health care and prescription coverage. By the year 2030, the number of older New Yorkers is expected to increase by 65 percent. The legislative session in Albany drew to a close in late June. AARP’s volunteers and members fought to ensure policies adopted allow New Yorkers to age with dignity, independence and security.

More than 29,000 members participated in tele-town hall meetings on issues impacting the state’s 50+ population. More than 150 volunteers visited their state legislators in Albany and members and activists made more than 30,000 contacts with state elected officials via phone calls, emails and faxes.

Below is an End of Session summary on AARP’s key state legislative priorities. Many thanks again to all of AARP’s volunteers and members that took action this session.
