Sanders Joins Walkout Following Refusal on Skelos Vote

(Albany, NY - May 6, 2015) - State Senator James Sanders Jr. (D-Rochdale) today joined Senate Democrats who walked off the senate floor after Republicans refused to call a vote on whether Senator Dean Skelos should retain his position as leader of the Senate following his arrest earlier this week on corruption charges.

"We can not continue as though this is business as usual," Sanders said following the walkout.  "This is insulting to the people of New York State."

This is the first time the Senate Majority has refused to vote on a measure brought before the house. This move demonstrates divisions within the Republican Conference as they will not publicly vote to support Skelos nor will they call upon him to step down.
