Statement from Assemblyman Walczyk on Special Session

"Seven days ago, Governor Hochul called for the Legislature to hold a Special Session on Thursday, June 30th.Well, the Legislature showed up, but the Governor failed miserably to have legislation ready to debate.After more than 24 hours of waiting, and a considerable expense to the taxpayers, we are going to take up bills with a message of necessity, robbing New Yorkers the opportunity to read the bills themselves.

With each day that goes by, it's more and more evident that Governor Hochul is not doing her job of fighting for New Yorkers.The Governor said that she "respects the Legislature" but after this circus has unfolded, it's clear she doesn't.This is nothing more than a PR stunt for her."
