Repeal Immunity Granted to Nursing Homes

Two weeks ago, New York State lawmakers took an important step toward partly remedying a wrong that was slipped into the state budget in April. Lawmakers passed a bill to repeal legal immunity for nursing homes – but only for non-COVID-related care, and only going forward.

We need you to send a message to Governor Andrew Cuomo and urge him to sign S.8835 that is on his desk – on the condition that he finishes the job by repealing immunity fully and retroactively.

The Governor has only a few days to decide whether to sign or veto this important bill, so we need you to act now.
