Nurses attended a lunchtime rally where UFT President Michael Mulgrew attested that “good health care depends on the good treatment of health care providers.” Attendees also heard from bill supporters, including State Comptroller Tom Di Napoli, Senate Health Committee Chair Kemp Hannon, Assembly Health Committee Chair Richard Gottfried and Assemblyman Rory Lancman.
