Statement From Senator David J. Valesky on Governor Signing Missing Vulnerable Adult Alert System Into Law

I am very pleased that Governor Cuomo has signed this bill into law. It is a fact that the longer vulnerable adults are missing, the more likely they are to be injured or killed. This law, which many of us have worked on for years, will enable families and law enforcement to get the word out about missing people faster, and therefore increase the likelihood of finding them unharmed.

Senator Valesky is a co-sponsor of this legislation.
