PBA PRESIDENT ON ENACTMENT OF
PENSION LEGISLATION IN EXTRAORDINARY SESSION

PBA president Patrick J. Lynch said:

“We are grateful to Governor Andrew Cuomo, the Senate and the Assembly for enacting into law legislation that continues progress towards an equitable pension benefit for the newest New York City police officers. We especially want to thank Assembly Member Peter Abbate and Senator Martin Golden for their leadership, and Governor Cuomo, Senate Majority Leader John Flanagan, Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie, and Senate Leader Jeff Klein, all of whom made disability protections for first responders a priority from the start of the legislative session and saw that commitment through to the very end.”
