Lawler Calls For Immediate Special Session To Address The “Attempted Assassination Loophole” Created By Hochul and Majority

Pearl River, NY, 7/22/2022…​ Assemblyman Mike Lawler called for an immediate special session today to address what he has coined the “Attempted Assassination Loophole” in NYS’ disastrous cashless bail law.

“After yesterday’s heinous attempted assassination of Lee Zeldin, Kathy Hochul must immediately call a special session to address New York State’s disastrous cashless bail laws and the ‘Attempted Assassination Loophole’. The fact that a deranged individual can attempt to assassinate a sitting member of Congress and be released on his own recognizance mere hours later is insanity, plain and simple.”

“Kathy Hochul moved swiftly to address the recent SCOTUS decisions around concealed carry and abortion access. Will she operate with the same expediency when her leading opponent was nearly assassinated? Her response will be telling.”
