2010 End of the Year Memo to Friends and Colleagues

Dear Colleagues and Friends:The 2010 Legislative Session year has come to a close and the New York State Senate Conference of Black Senators had a very productive year. As a Conference, we selected 23 high priority legislative Signature bills that would have significant impacts on our communities of color. Out of the 23 bills, we were able to get 16 of these passed in both houses and signed by the Governor.

It is my hope that for the 2011 Legislative year that we will continue to put forth Signature Legislative bills that will help our communities.
