February 22, 2016-- West Haverstraw, NY - Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced that more than 70 prominent elected officials, labor leaders, community-based organizations, advocacy groups from throughout the Hudson Valley have joined the “Strong Families, Strong New York” campaign to fight for passage of paid family leave in New York State. These individuals and groups are endorsing the Governor’s proposal for 12 weeks of paid benefits, funded by employees, to allow workers to care for new children or seriously ill relatives. The Governor’s proposal would benefit millions of New Yorkers – especially women, minorities and low-income workers who need it most – in addition to businesses and the economy overall, and would be the most robust such policy in the nation.
