Latimer & Buchwald Hit the Ground Running

Partner with local governments to advance community priorities

(WESTCHESTER, NY) – Moving into the legislative session that will begin in January, two of Westchester’s recently elected state legislators have already hit the ground running.  State Senator-Elect George Latimer and Assemblyman-Elect David Buchwald are already working with local officials in Harrison, North Castle and Bedford to author and prepare important “home rule” legislation for introduction in the new legislative session. “Home rule” bills relate to pressing local matters that require an alteration of state law.  Latimer and Buchwald have already sent letters to the local government leaders in Harrison, North Castle and Bedford asking for them to organize their legislative priorities so they can be turned into legislative language, reviewed by counsel and eventually introduced to the Senate and Assembly for consideration.
