Gov. Hochul has signed a package of bills to protect New Yorkers who receive public benefits.

The first bill notifies recipients about the rights they have when they apply for assistance.

The second requires Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Programs to provide two Electronic Benefit Transfer cards for each home that has more than one parent. This will give recipients more convenience when it comes to using their benefits.
