New York Mental Health Tax Check-Off Bill Passes Senate, Heads To Governor

The AP (6/18) reports that the New York “Senate has followed the Assembly and voted for a new tax check-off intended to help end the stigma around mental illness.” The bill “would establish a gift check-off” on state income tax forms “to a special fund that would be used by the state Office of Mental Health to provide grants to organizations dedicated to eliminating the stigma.” The measure now heads to Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) for his consideration.
