Democratic state Sens. Liz Krueger and Alessandra Biaggi want Cuomo’s emergency executive powers to be removed, following the release of James’ bombshell report. “Just to put this into perspective as to why we need to limit and end the governor’s outsize power, his broad emergency power, is because in just the first six months of the governor’s expanded emergency powers, he used that power to issue 65 executive orders, and to suspend more than 250 laws,” Biaggi said on Wednesday.
