NY State Senate Still Struggling

September 12, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

Despite the extraordinary amount of declared support for bill S5881 (amending, extending and expanding the Multiple Dwelling Law) and the efforts of Senator Daniel Squadron and cosponsors, the bill was not part of last week’s extraordinary Senate session.

Reasons as to why not are still foggy. Senator Brian Foley’s absence due to his father’s death complicated things without a question.

The Senate is still not functional and party politics forced even non-partisan bills either off the agenda or caused them to fail.

Our energies and efforts are now focused on the next session, which we have some hope will be at the end of September. Stay tuned.
