The state Senate approved the New York HERO Act that will mandate enforceable safety standards in the workplace during the COVID-19 crisis. Now, state Senator Michel Gianaris, the bill’s author, is calling on Gov. Andrew Cuomo to sign the measure into law when it lands on his desk.
“Too many workers have already sacrificed their health for our community’s benefit,” Gianaris said. “The New York HERO Act honors their efforts by giving workers the tools to protect themselves while on the job. I appreciate the support for this proposal from my colleagues in both houses and so many organizations throughout New York.”
