Stewart-Cousins Bill Cuts Costs For Counties, Nonprofits

Governor Andrew Cuomo signed legislation, sponsored by Senator Andrea Stewart-Cousins (D/I/WF – 35th District) and Assemblywoman Sandy Galef (D/I/WF/WEP-95th District), which allows nonprofit organizations that provide services for their respective counties to make purchases through use of county contacts. This legislation allows counties to provide opportunities for nonprofit service providers to realize savings without compromising service delivery, so long as the contracts relate directly to the service the nonprofit administers to the county.
