Lawmakers introduce bill to bring handicap accessible playgrounds to parks across New York

State lawmakers are pushing for a bill to bring handicap-accessible playground equipment to parks across New York State.

State Assemblymember Josh Jensen (R) and state Senator Mario Mattera (R) will host a press conference on Monday at the State Capitol to introduce the “Everyone Can Play” bill, according to News10 NBC. The bill would establish a state grant program to aid local municipalities in installing handicap-accessible playground equipment at area parks.

Lawmakers will be joined by Santii Patel, a 9-year-old girl who sold hot chocolate to raise money to build playgrounds for disabled children.

The press conference will be held on Monday, May 9 at 11 a.m and will be livestreamed on the Republican Assembly Campaign Committee’s Facebook page.
