Jan. 19th Community Update from Senator Mayer

Community Update 1 19 2019

Dear Friend:

In her first speech as Leader, Majority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins promised that the State Senate will work to break down barriers and create opportunity. On the second day of the Legislative Session, I was proud to vote in favor of a momentous package of bills to increase voter access in New York State and shine a light on dark money in politics. Read more about the legislation in the section below.

Tuesday, January 15th was another exciting day in Albany as we voted on two bills which help the state meet its responsibility to the LGBTQ community. S.1046 bans conversion therapy for minors, and S.1047 provides transgender and gender-nonconforming individuals with the same protections guaranteed to other protected classes. Read more about both of these bills in the section below.

As always, if we can help you with an issue, please don't hesitate to reach out to my office at 914-934-5250 or smayer@nysenate.gov.

Warm regards,

Shelley B. Mayer
