ALBANY, N.Y. — Two health-related protests were held Wednesday, not far from where Gov. Andrew Cuomo had his State of the State address.
One protest was against last year's ban on religious exemptions for vaccinations after a lawsuit against it was dismissed last month.
The other protest criticized the governor for vetoing a bill that would have licensed and regulated big companies called pharmacy benefit managers that are the middlemen among pharmacies, drug manufacturers and insurance companies.
They claim a lack of oversight is hurting independent pharmacies across the state and forcing them to go out of business, and they want answers from the governor as to why he vetoed it, something he hasn't answered.
