Senator Rev. Ruben Diaz Supports Senator Jeff Klein's Women's Equality Act
New York Senator Rev. Ruben Diaz (D-Bronx) has announced his support for the IDC's own Women's Agenda legislation that has been introduced on Sunday by Senator Jeff Klein (IDC-Bronx).
Senator Rev. Diaz stated: "I salute Senator Jeff Klein and his IDC colleagues, and applaud their efforts to bring the nine measures included in the IDC's Women's Agenda package. As a Democrat, I will vote for this bill when it comes for a vote. Governor Cuomo's abortion expansion agenda measure was a distraction and does not belong in this effort to promote much needed equality for New York's women. The abortion battles may continue, but not at the cost of these real goals. After the bill passes, we will all have to wait and see if Governor Cuomo will sign it into law."
