ALBANY, NY — December 30, 2021 — The Pharmacists Society of the State of New York today issued their response to Governor Hochul’s veto of legislation S6603/A7598, the centerpiece of the bipartisan Pharmacy Rescue Package passed by the Senate and Assembly in June 2021. The statement herein is attributed to Karl Williams, President of the Pharmacists Society of the State of New York.

“Pharmacists are devastated by Governor Hochul’s veto of S6603/A7598, which will cost taxpayers tens of millions of dollars a year, endanger millions of New Yorkers and put more community pharmacies out of business while further enriching the Fortune 15 pharmacy benefit managers that already have raked in billions of dollars in record profits off this pandemic. We urge the Governor to sign the remaining bills in the Pharmacy Rescue Package immediately and stand ready to support her in honoring her commitment to address this broadly supported legislation in the 2022 State budget.” – Karl Williams, President of the Pharmacists Society of the State of New York
