NYSPA Legislative Session Wrap Up

The 2016 New York State Legislative Session began on January 16th, when the Governor delivered his State of the State address and released his Executive Budget Proposal.  For the sixth consecutive year, the Governor and Legislature delivered an on-time budget. NYSPA was active in the 2016 Legislative Session and participated in its second consecutive Lobby Day on May 10th. On Lobby Day, NYSPA’s Executive Leadership, members from throughout the State, and representatives from Wilson Elser went to the New York State Capitol to advocate on behalf of NYSPA’s legislative priorities.

Prior to Lobby Day, NYSPA’s Executive Leadership met with key legislators to seek sponsorship and support for NYSPA’s legislative priorities; NYSPA was successful in obtaining sponsorship in both Houses of the Legislature for all of its priorities.  Following Lobby Day, NYSPA monitored its priority issues, and provided input as legislation moved through the Senate and Assembly.  NYSPA was also successful in opposing legislation that would harm the profession of psychology by allowing non-doctoral level psychologists to be licensed as school psychologists in New York State. 

As 2016 marked the end of a two-year Legislative Session, any legislation that did not pass both Houses and is not signed or vetoed by the Governor by December 31st will need to be fully reintroduced in 2017.
