On January 10th, Governor Hochul gave her one-hour long State of the State Address to a full Assembly Chamber.
The 275-page book can be found here outlining 147 distinct proposals. The Governor made a commitment not to raise income taxes in 2023 and is looking to stem the exodus of NY residents.
The Governor's Health Care proposals are focused in several key areas:
- Commission on Future of Health Care
- Health care transformation funding and funding for technology
- CON Reform
- Expanding health care coverage
- Workforce Issues: Reforming traveling nurse agency practices including registration and reporting key data
- Curbing Tobacco Use
The next step will be for her to deliver the Executive Budget Presentation.
Reports indicate this will occur on February 1st.
