In the address, Hochul outlined nine key components of her agenda:

  • rebuilding the health care economy;
  • protecting public safety and taking strong action against gun violence;
  • investing in New York’s people;
  • investing in New York’s communities;
  • making New York’s housing system more affordable, equitable and stable;
  • making New York a national leader in climate action and green jobs;
  • rebuilding New York’s teacher workforce and reimagining higher education;
  • advancing New York’s place as a national equity model; and
  • making critical reforms to restore New Yorkers’ faith in their government.

The Association will provide additional information about the governor’s public policy priorities and their potential impacts on credit unions as it becomes available throughout the legislative session, which also began on Wednesday.
