Every hour, the New York Workers' Compensation Alliance Legislative Action Center records a steady stream of supporters emailing Governor David Paterson asking him to sign the pending LaCroix Bill to help injured workers. In addition, workers compensation advocates from around the State are forwarding their own letters of support. These practitioners, who are in the "trenches" every day representing claimants, know the real economic benefit this bill can be to struggling injured workers if Gov. Paterson makes it law.
Please read the letter of support from Syracuse workers' compensation claimant attorney, Omar Obeid, here. In addition, please read the letter of long time practitioner Eliot Levine of Hauppauge here. Thanks to Omar and Eliot for sharing their letters of support!
Please check this site daily for further updates on Governor Paterson's stance on this important legislation. Thank you for your continued support of injured workers throughout New York State.
