Assemblymember Jessica González-Rojas & Make the Road New York‘s Theo Oshiro wrote a powerful op-ed for El Diario Nueva York, urging legislators in Albany to pass Coverage4All.

“Our state has an opportunity to substantially expand health coverage for New Yorkers–and it wouldn’t cost New York a penny. Last week the State Senate passed Coverage for All legislation, which would expand Essential Plan coverage to low-income New Yorkers, regardless of immigration status. With the State Assembly set to return for two more legislative days this week, the chamber has the chance to do the right thing and bring home an historic victory for New Yorkers.”
