ASSEMBLYMAN SCHMITT STATEMENT ON VETO OF PBM LEGISLATION

Washingtonville, NY — (12/27/19) Assemblyman Colin J. Schmitt (R,C,I-New Windsor) released the following statement in response to Governor Cuomo’s veto of A.2836A:

“I am disappointed that the Governor has vetoed bipartisan legislation meant to protect New York consumers and ensure access to vital health care services through our local pharmacies.

A.2836A was one of the nation’s toughest PBM bills that had significant bipartisan support because it would help New Yorkers in every corner of our state. Sadly, due to Governor Cuomo’s veto local pharmacies will continue to close and vital access to medication and medical services will be cut off for many.

As co-sponsor of the bill I pledge to work with my colleagues to continue to advance efforts to protect consumers and healthcare access despite the Governor’s actions.”
