Statement from Senator Mike Martucci

Today I strongly supported legislation to allow the Assembly and the Senate to fully fund an impeachment investigation and trial for Andrew Cuomo. I was among the first to call for his impeachment, and I want the legislature to have every resource it needs to make it happen as soon as possible. Now that the impeachment proceedings and the attorney fees for victims and witnesses are all funded, there is absolutely NO excuse for the Assembly to continue to drag its feet. Andrew Cuomo must be held accountable for his abuses of power and his offenses against women and the elderly. I will not rest until that happens. The clock is ticking, and justice must be done.
