New Law Restores Cuts to the Disabled

Earlier this year, Senator Lanza stood with his Senate colleagues to block $120 million in cuts to programs that serve developmentally disabled New Yorkers.  While their efforts during the 2013-1014 budget negotiations restored some of the funding, programs throughout the state were still in danger due to a $90 million budget shortfall --- threatening to diminish access to important services for thousands of developmentally disabled citizens across the state.

Few issues this year have generated more input from concerned constituents. That's why Senator Lanza is pleased to announce that support for these vital programs will now be protected under legislation that Governor Andrew Cuomo just signed into law.
