Assemblywoman Sandy Galef and Sen. David Carlucci sponsored landmark legislation that passed both houses that will remove the word “handicap” from accessibility signs and replace the universal symbol of a person sitting stationary in a wheelchair to one of a person in a wheelchair in motion. New York is the first state in the nation to pass this legislation.
