Kathy Hochul Vows Pandemic Relief in First State of the State Speech

In her first State of the State address, Gov. Kathy Hochul announced a $10 billion pledge to fortify New York’s health care work force and outlined her economic recovery plan.

My fellow New Yorkers, this agenda is for you. Every single initiative is filtered through the lens of how it’ll help you and your families. I’m setting an ambitious goal to grow our health care work force by 20 percent over the next five years, and will make the largest investment in health care in state’s history: $10 billion. Families, small business owners, farmers, they all need our help and they need it now. And they’re going to get it. We will accelerate a $1.2 billion tax cut originally scheduled to take effect between now and 2025, so that it occurs a lot earlier. And we will deliver $100 million in much needed relief to nearly 200,000 small businesses to keep their doors open, and weather what the next few months bring. We’re going to jump-start our economic recovery by being the most business-friendly and worker-friendly state in the nation.
