CSEA Veterans Committee


Statement of CSEA President Danny Donohue on signing of Veterans Equality Act
ALBANY — “CSEA achieved a major legislative goal late last night when Governor Cuomo signed the Veterans Equality Act (S. 7160 – Larkin / A. 9531 – Paulin) into law.
This action addresses a long-standing inequity among military veterans serving in the public service and recognizes the importance of respecting all. I am proud that CSEA veterans were in forefront of efforts to ensure this fairness. The unwavering efforts of Senate Majority Leader John
Flanagan, Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie, Senator William Larkin and Assemblywoman Amy Paulin were essential to this tremendous benefit for our veterans becoming law.”
