Legislative Gazette: Freshman senator: Kill the vampires

Great article on my Vampire Bill in the Legislative Gazette:

Freshman Sen. Terry Gipson, D-Rhinebeck, has proposed the "Vampire Voting Bill" that would outlaw voting on most legislation between 9 p.m. and 9 a.m. The law would place no restrictions on debates, nor voting on rules or procedures, generally considered housekeeping items. Another freshman, Sen. Cecilia Tkaczyk, D-Duanseberg, co-sponsored the bill.

 

Gipson said his proposal is an answer to a decades-old problem. He said the passage of his law would hold lawmakers accountable for their votes and lead to "more robust" debates on the Senate and Assembly floors.

Senator Gipson Q&A with Joe Martens, NYS Dept. of Environmental Conservation

During my questioning of DEC Commissioner Joe Martens during the joint budget hearings, I was concerned about some specifics of his testimony. New York State seems to have spent millions of dollars on a study based on "hypotheticals." I am concerned that the Governor will make a decision whether to allow Hydraulic Fracturing based on these "hypotheticals" and not real world science. Listen to the testimony and see if you don't agree.

Senator Gipson Explains his Vote on Redistricting

On Wednesday, January 23, S.2107 was brought to the floor of the Senate for a vote. The measure, if approved, would pave the way for a referendum offered to the public in the fall to change the redistricting process in the New York State Constitution.

After consideration, Senator Gipson voted no on the measure because the details of the bill would institiutionalize partisanship in the process; a process, ironically called "independent, non-partisan redistricting."
