NAIFA-New York Legislative Update - July 2021

By NAIFA-New York on 7/9/21 11:15 AM

Legislative Session Update
As reported previously, the New York State Legislature concluded their legislative session on June 10 with their traditional flurry of legislative activity with 461 bills passing both houses during the final week.

As a point of reference, 892 bills passed both houses this session which began in January. Of the 892 measures, 652 have yet to be delivered to be Governor which is not atypical for this point in the year. We anticipate that most of these measures will be enacted into law with most of the vetoes occurring at the end of the year. It is unclear at this point what impact the pending investigations of the Executive Chamber will have if any on this process.

In a sign that the world is returning to some sense of normalcy, the State Capital is now open to the public.

June 22 was primary day in New York State. Due to the new ranked voting methodology, the winner in the NYC Democratic mayoral primary has not been declared but it appears that Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams is the favorite to occupy Gracie Mansion next January.

As an aside, every state legislator seeking local office in New York City lost on primary day.

In Buffalo, Democratic Social of America member India Walton decisively upset four-term Mayor Byron Brown in the Democratic primary. Ms. Walton is the overwhelming favorite to be the next Mayor of Buffalo.

Finally, State Senator Todd Kaminsky has announced his candidacy for Nassau County District Attorney.

NAIFA-New York Legislative Update - May 3, 2021

By NAIFA-New York on 5/3/21 12:57 PM

Legislative Session
With the enactment of the State Budget, the Legislature has shifted its focus to programmatic issues. The Legislature plans to complete the 2021 Session on June 10th. Both houses will likely pass virtually thousands of bills over the next six weeks. The Attorney General’s investigation into sexual harassment allegations against Governor Cuomo will undoubtedly impact the pace and agenda for the balance of the Legislative Session.
