The New York State legislative session ended on Friday, June 11th. While some critical pieces of legislation were passed, CPC and its subsidiary, the CPC Home Attendant Program Inc. (HAP), are disappointed that A3145 (Epstein) – the bill to end 24-hour shifts for home care workers and replace those live-in shifts with 12-hour split shifts – did not pass. It is an urgent priority to end this practice, and we are grateful to the long-time legislative champions and the seven new co-sponsors that signed in support of A3145 this session. We will continue building momentum around this important issue by advocating for change ahead of the next legislative session.
