OP-ED: SEN. GIPSON & ASM. LALOR JOIN TO END UNFUNDED MANDATES

It’s no secret that we don’t see eye to eye on every issue.

However, we were both elected last year as outsiders committed to reforming our state government and reducing the cost of living in our community. We both understand the burden unfunded mandates place on local governments, school districts and, ultimately, taxpayers.

As we have done with our legislation to establish term limits in Albany, we are working together and proposing a bipartisan constitutional amendment to end the decades-long practice of passing down unfunded mandates from the state to local governments.

Engaging Senator Schumer with my TickBITE Act

I applaud Senator Schumer for coming to Dutchess County to bring awareness and taking action on this important issue on the federal level. I have introduced the TickBITE Act and other legislation on the state level to address the seriousness of Lyme disease and tick-borne illness. It is crucial that those affected by this disease are cared for while we expand our efforts for research and education. I look forward to working with Senator Schumer to better protect the health of all New Yorkers.
