The New York State Senate today in Albany will begin holding public hearings to examine the state’s current parole policies and Governor Andrew Cuomo’s Executive Order earlier this year allowing conditional pardons that enable parolees to vote.
On April 18, 2018, Governor Cuomo signed Executive Order 181 ordering the state Department of Corrections and Community Supervision (DOCCS) to submit records of parolees to the governor’s office so that a determination could be made concerning the granting of a conditional pardon to restore their voting rights. The Senate will examine the Executive Order in detail and its impact on New Yorkers
Today's hearing begins at 12:00 p.m.
