As the U.S. Senate considers yet another version of healthcare reform legislation to change the Affordable Care Act, or "Obamacare," NYSSBA, in partnership with the National School Boards Association (NSBA), urges local school board members to contact their U.S. Senators and congressional representatives and urge them to oppose legislation or provisions that place arbitrary caps on how much Medicaid funding a child receives. Take Action Now
Medicaid funding is directly related to a school's ability to assist students by providing access to quality healthcare.
Contact your U.S. Senators and ask them to protect this funding.

Today the extraordinary session, which began yesterday at the call of the Governor, came to a close.
After nearly a full day of negotiations yesterday, the Assembly passed a bill that would, among other things, extend mayoral control of the New York City school system for 2 additional years (until June 30, 2019) in the overnight.

Earlier today, the NYSSBA Governmental Relations team conducted a webinar discussing the end of the 2017 legislative session and how your school district could be impacted.
We discussed what bills state lawmakers passed, what bills they did not, and what business was left unfinished.
Last night just before midnight, both houses of the legislature adjourned and released their members. Unfortunately, this was before a deal could be agreed to on an extension of mayoral control over the New York City school system. This provision of law expires at the end of the month. At this time it is unclear if or when legislators will return to address this issue.
While negotiations on this issue were ongoing, many issues of importance to school districts were taken up by one or both houses.
