Sorry to report that our bill did not make it out of committee today. Our bill sponsor, Assemblywoman Janele Hyer-Spencer, fought for all of us. There was a debate about definitions and the name of our bill. It was clearly a ploy to prevent our bill from passing this year.
We want to THANK everyone for all the emails and phone calls made. And all the times you asked your family and friends to help you (us). The bill has gone further than ever before and we now have some new information to use next year.
All the seats in the Assembly are up for election this November. If you are in Assm Janele Hyer-Spencer (D) 60th District - East Shore of Staten Island and Bay Ridge, Brooklyn - please consider voting for her. She believes in the bill and has fought harder and louder than any other legislator we have seen. We don't want to lose her or her amazing Legislative Director, Jessica.
Hope you will join us next year!
