New York Health Act passes legislative chamber
ALBANY, NY (WRGB)--Lawmakers announced Tuesday afternoon the New York Health Act has passed the State Assembly.
The bill would establish the New York Health Program, a single-payer healthcare system.
Assembly Democrats are concerned that any changes to the Affordable Health Care Act could impact New Yorkers' access to healthcare and hope this bill will offset any changes.
The bill now heads to the State Senate where it's been shot down the past two years when it's made it through the Assembly.
