Session has come to yet another end without our state recognizing the birth of our children.
Many of you have pledged your efforts when session starts again. Those efforts will be essential for our success. Enough cannot be said about the tremendous effort and energy put out by all of you over the past few weeks. Now, more than ever before, the NYS legislators know about our bill. They know about the powerful forces behind it. They know we will not go away. They know to expect many future waves of calls, e-mails, faxes, and letters.
Please join us in thanking our bill sponsor, Janele Hyer-Spencer, for all she has done for our cause. Ms. Hyer-Spencer is up for re-election this year so please offer any assistance to ensure that she remains in office and our voice in the Assembly.
Keep in touch with your reps (both houses) to make sure they are representing you when it comes time to make a decision.
We will resume our fight in August.
For all our children,
Paige, Michelle, Jeff and Lori
