Governor Andrew Cuomo signed legislation to further support New York veterans by improving healthcare and services, along with memorializing veterans. Among the bills include the addition of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder as a qualifying condition in New York’s medical marijuana program along with more paid leave for state-employed to obtain health services, counseling and access to other benefits. Cuomo also directed the Office of General Services to set aside a location within the State Capitol for a POW/MIA chair and plaque to honor those veterans who have not yet returned home.
