Published: January 23rd, 2019

NORWICH – Family Planning of South Central New York applauds the New York State Legislature’s passage of both the Reproductive Health Act and the Comprehensive Contraception Coverage Act.

Both bills were passed by the state Assembly and Senate on Tuesday, Jan. 22 — the 46th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade ruling — and then signed into law the same day by Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
