Governor Cuomo: VETO S4203A | A2199A!

We implore New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo to VETO S4203A / A2199A the supposed “Preserving Family Bonds Act”. Mediation and support preserves family bonds. A court order does not! This bill, if signed into law, will unfairly subject adoptive families to years of ongoing legal expense and undeserved intervention


New York State has a decision to make: Will the state fight the foster families who provide homes and care for the children in the state’s custody? Will the state accept that foster families are entitled to reimbursement for providing basic necessities such as food, clothing and shelter for the children in the state’s care?
