Supporters of the New York Health Act staged a march and die-in on the streets of Albany today, blocking traffic outside the State Capitol.
It was their final attempt to pressure Legislators to pass the Single Payer bill during this Legislative Session.
The Realities of Single Payer Coalition (in which NYSSPS is a member) released a statement in response to the rally. In its current format, the NYSSPS is still opposed to the bill.
Assembly Health Committee Chair Richard Gottfried during an interview on Friday admitted that there are a number of Legislators who are signed on to the bill but are expressing serious concerns behind the scenes.
