As you may recall the state agencies which were granted exemptions a decade ago were told to hire licensed psychologists so they would be in compliance by this year. This year the exemptions were to end. Except that Governor Cuomo made the exemptions permanent in his budget.
Now the Senate and Assembly have proposed a 3 year extension of the exemption. This has to be negotiated with the Governor and resolved in about a week. So there you have it. Lets see what next week brings.
