Senator Jim Tedisco (R,C,I,REF-Glenville) today joined with his Senate Republican colleagues and several local officials and crime victims to call on the Senate Majority to pass legislation that protects victims, keeps our communities safe, and does not reward law-breakers.

Tedisco, his colleagues, and crime victims’ advocates are sounding the alarm over several proposals being fast-tracked by Senate Democrats including eliminating cash bail which would allow many serious offenders to skip town and potentially commit more crimes and put public safety at greater risk.

“Look no further than the Senate Majority who are porch pirates because they stole this Amazon package right under the Governor’s nose! The decision by Amazon to pull out of its deal with New York falls under the adage be careful what you wish for because you might just get it. When you have one voice, from one part of the state, from one political affiliation controlling all levers of government without checks and balances, you empower the extreme, radical regressives who have taken over the legislature to negatively impact our state’s economy.”

There is a very real risk to women’s right to control their reproductive choices, given the makeup of the U.S. Supreme Court.
