Dear Members,

 

We are deeply disappointed to announce that our bill related to care provided by the physical therapist assistant within the Workers' Compensation System has once again been vetoed by Governor Cuomo. We again find significant flaws in his rationale for vetoing outlined in the veto message released by his office late last night. President Mike Mattia will be issuing a press release to highlight our disappointment with the governor's actions. Despite this year's outcome we will continue to pursue this important legislative initiative.

A sincere thank you to all who acted on behalf of this bill.

Best,

 

Jake McPherson, PT, DPT, NCS, MSCS - Chairperson, NYPTA Public Policy Committee

 

Michael Mattia, PT, DPT, MS, MHA– President, NYPTA
