Howard Beach, NY (January 29, 2016) With Governor Cuomo calling the approval of a paid family leave program a priority in 2016, NYS Senator Joseph P. Addabbo, Jr. is optimistic that a policy to help New Yorkers more easily take legitimate time off from work to bond with a new baby, address family difficulties arising from military leave and care for seriously ill spouses, parents and other loved ones may finally become a reality in the Empire State.
