Wednesday was Nurses Day and a candlelight vigil was held at Westchester Medical Center to honor the front-line health care workers.
The New York State Nurses Association organized the vigil.
Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney introduced the Frontline Heroes Appreciation Act, which would provide New York's health care essential workers on the front lines with federal income tax relief.
Health care workers making less than $100,000 a year will receive a $7,500 tax credit, and there is a tax exemption for those making less than $100,000 earned during the pandemic.
Maloney will be hosting a press conference Thursday with state and local essential workers to discuss the work they're doing as well as funding for state and local governments in the next coronavirus legislative package.
