The legislative session this year was the most frustrating and oddest we have experienced to date.
As soon as it begun in January, the door was closed. Even through the hard work of parents across NY, who were able to secure more Assembly sponsors and yes votes - for a total of 123 out of 150 members. It was clear the bill would not be moving out of the Assembly Ways & Means committee. In addition, the lack of movement in Senate House was unexpected and given the recent unstable climate in there, 2009 just wasn't our year.
We will be working on a new approach for the 2010 legislative session. We hope all of you will join us and help to pass the CBRS bill.
