Interstate Compact: NEW YORK MAKES 50!
LEXINGTON, KY — With the signing of Senate Bill 6887 by Governor Andrew Cuomo, New York becomes the 50th state to adopt “The Interstate Compact on Educational Opportunity for Military Children” into law. The new law eases the transition to a new school for children of military families that relocate as a result of military orders.
“Honoring our veterans, service members and military families for their service and sacrifice is one of our highest responsibilities as New Yorkers – and today our state is taking a tremendous step forward in how we support both these brave men and women and their loved ones,” Governor Cuomo said.
