    AFC also submitted testimony for the New York State Joint Legislative Public Hearing on the 2021-2022 Executive Budget Health Proposal, urging the Legislature to reject proposals to cut state funding for the Early Intervention (EI) program by limiting the services children can receive and, instead, invest more in EI by asking private health insurance companies to pay their fair share.
