Statement from Senate Republican Leader Rob Ortt on the End of the Mask Mandate for School Children

NYS Senate Seal

The unmasking of our school children is a long overdue victory for kids and parents, educators, and common sense.

It is time to put my resolution up for a vote, end the unnecessary statewide emergency, and end all Albany mandates. Our colleagues across the aisle have refused to act – it’s time that we take this up for a vote this week.

It’s time to restore checks and balances, and make sure no Governor can do this again. We must empower people, not politicians.
