For decades, the way the Senate operates has stifled good legislation from getting off the ground. Under the new Senate Majority, we are empowering every single member of our chamber—Democrat and Republican—to do the work of the people of New York.
Some of these occurences are not flashy or newsworthy--but their obscurity does not change their significance. Take today, for example. Today, the Senate made history, putting partisan rancor aside and rising as a collective body to move two bills towards passage in an especially unique and democratic way.
Thank you to all of those who participated in the New York State Senate's fist ever online Town Hall. Since we're always striving to serve the people of New York better, and this was our first attempt at an event like this, we would appreciate your feedback on how we can improve the experience.
