- Jan 24 by Paco-RNDo you know the status of this legislation? I did a quick search but did not find much. Do you think this will have as much success as it did in California?
- Jan 24 by DoGoodThenGoLooks like so far totally nothing, no movement at all. However that is perfectly normal for Albany where nothing happens unless prodded or pushed by either events or an elected offical or officals that want it "done", such as Cuomo and Bloomberg on "gay marriage".
My guess is the hospital/heathcare systems are fighting against it and are making the case they cannot afford it in these uncertain fiscal times.
