1.11.23 Summary of Governor Hochul’s State of the State address. Brown and Weinraub notes some of the proposals highlighted lack details and clarity until the Governor’s proposed budget bills are released. During elections years, the Governor has two additional weeks to release the Executive budget, making the latest date we expect to see the final proposal February 1.
To help address concerns and questions arising in the field about the Corona virus, ASAP has created an e-mail resource to serve as a central communication vehicle. ASAP hosts Zoom meetings. Please note that ASAP continues to host calls every Monday, Tuesday and Thursday at 10:30 am. All ASAP members and staff are welcome and encouraged to participate. Click here for Zoom information.
CoronaHelpLine@asapnys.org will be monitored by ASAP, used to identify questions and concerns, and will be a vehicle to directly respond to all e-mail questions. We have been encouraged to emphasize the importance of having a key contact person at your LOCAL county/city Department of Health to get current information or to respond to your questions and concerns. The ASAP e-mail is not a substitute for the immediate actions and communications that should take place locally. We are here to provide additional information and support.
