Queens lawmakers praise Hochul for signing legislation supporting students with disabilities into law


State Assemblywoman Catalina Cruz and state Senator John Liu lauded Gov. Kathy Hochul’s plans to support students with disabilities, along with a major legislative package signed into law that will make a difference in the lives of students, families and schools across the state.

Hochul’s plans include a historic $240 million increase in investment for approved private schools serving children with disabilities, and resources to support those students in her upcoming 2022-2023 executive budget.
