An agreement with Cigna, a major global health insurer, will remove barriers to opioid treatment drugs for patients nationwide.

Ensuring Affidavit Ballot Opportunities
After a preliminary investigation discovered  inconsistencies in ballot access across NY, the Attorney General sent letters to local election boards statewide, instructing them to offer affidavit ballots to any voter who may be registered, but does not appear on local voter rolls.

Protecting Our Most Vulnerable Citizens

Six nurses were arrested for exploiting the financial vulnerability of elderly residents. Nursing home residents are among our state’s most vulnerable citizens, and they deserve to be treated with the utmost respect and dignity by those in charge of their care. 
Prosecuting For-Profit Schools That Defraud Taxpayers
The Attorney General announced a $4.3 million settlement with the owners of a for-profit school network who used special education programs as a way to defraud the government and cheat on their taxes—sticking law abiding New Yorkers with the bill in the process.
