BPCLC Co-Chair Senator Liz Krueger released the following statement after the passage of the bill:
"Ensuring that all New Yorkers, regardless of income, have access to contraceptive options is good for our families and a vital step toward women's equality. Lack of coverage and high co-pays prevent many women and men from being able to make their own decisions about starting a family. Contraceptive equity reduces unintended pregnancies, and leads to families that are planned, safe and healthy. I congratulate Assembly Member Cahill and his colleagues for passing this bill today, I thank Senator Bonacic for his leadership, and I encourage my fellow Senators to take swift action and put this bill on the Governor's desk."
