Bill would reimburse SUNY and CUNY students forced out by vaccine mandate

A state lawmaker is sponsoring a bill that would require the state to reimburse tuition to SUNY and CUNY students who were kicked out of school for failure to comply with a vaccine mandate.


News 10 NBC reports State Senator George Borello of Livingston County is proposing the bill to reimburse those students for any costs of attending school during the terms in which they were disenrolled. Borello says the mandate forced 1500 students to leave school. He says many of them applied for religious or medical exemptions. He calls the state’s decision to keep their money “unconscionable.”

In August, the state passed the mandate, giving students 35 days to comply or to apply for an exemption.

The bill is currently before the Senate Higher Education Committee.
