Statement from Senate Democratic Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins on the Assembly’s Passage of the Women’s Equality Agenda


“I congratulate the Speaker and the Assembly for passing the comprehensive, 10-point Women’s Equality Agenda.

“In 1970, when the issue of reproductive health was first passed in New York, 12 Republican Senators joined a majority of their Democratic colleagues to support this landmark legislation. It is now time for the Senate Coalition to act and to pass the entire 10-point Women’s Equality Agenda.”
