The Senate Majority conference unveiled its 2011 committee assignments at the Capitol earlier today. In addition to heading up the Senate Elections Committee as chairman, I’ll also be serving on 10 other committees.
Albany, N.Y., February 28—State Senator Tom O’Mara (R-C, Big Flats), who was one of 18 state senators who voted against the recently enacted NY SAFE Act and spoke at today’s protest rally in Albany, issued the following statement:
“I stand with many citizens and local leaders from across the Southern Tier and Finger Lakes regions in opposition to the NY SAFE Act. Equally important, we’re opposed to the shoddy legislative process that produced a law that’s full of failings and shortcomings, and places even more state-imposed burdens on already hard-pressed upstate citizens and localities.
