Queens lawmakers Senator Toby Ann Stavisky and Assemblywoman Stacey Pheffer Amato made history when the New York State Legislature passed their groundbreaking bill to help women and survivors of a post-mastectomy who have been impacted by breast cancer. 

Bill A.8537 passed the Assembly on May 3 with 147-0 votes, and bill S.7881 passed the Senate on May 31 with 63-0 votes, passing both houses in a bipartisan and unanimous manner. The bill will now head to the desk of Governor Kathy Hochul to be signed into law.
