Senator Marc Panepinto Votes on Women’s Equality Agenda

ALBANY, N.Y. – Senator Marc Panepinto released the following statement on the passage of several bills from the Women’s Equality Agenda:

“I am proud that in my first votes cast as a State Senator, I helped pass eight key pieces of legislation in the Women’s Equality Agenda. Ranging from equal pay for equal work to ending discrimination and sexual harassment against women in all workplaces, these bills would help all New Yorkers, regardless of gender, secure the rights and protections they deserve. Unfortunately, these eight important bills stand little chance of becoming law because Senate Republicans continue to refuse to pass the part of the Women's Equality Act that codifies a woman's right to choose in New York State. We need to pass the entire Women's Equality Act immediately and ensure women in our state are treated equally under law."

Statement From Senate Democratic Conference Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins on the Women's Equality Act

Today’s legislative maneuvering is clearly a political ploy by the Senate Republicans. To once again reject the full Women’s Equality Act is deeply disturbing. Let us remember that the final point is simply codifying current federal law  into New York State law and saying anything to the contrary is a deliberate distraction from their extremist anti-choice views. Women’s health should never be a partisan issue. In 1970, a dozen Senate Republicans joined with their Democratic colleagues to address reproductive rights in New York State. It is troubling that today’s Republican conference has once again proven that they are all against women’s reproductive rights.
