DeStefano on the End of 2021 Session

A Statement from Assemblyman Joe DeStefano (R,C,I-Medford)

“This year’s legislative session was more of the same backward-thinking polices which have only hurt New Yorkers,” said DeStefano. “The Assembly Majority prioritized legislation protecting criminals and illegal immigrants while abandoning hard-working New Yorkers. I am deeply disappointed we are leaving Albany without rescinding the emergency declaration and limiting the governor’s powers.”

“This is no longer an emergency, it’s a recovery. We need to focus on rebuilding our economy and getting people back to work, and we cannot do that with Gov. Cuomo setting arbitrary guidelines. While I am pleased to have passed legislation that will protect and provide more resources for our first responders, Albany must do a better job of prioritizing the needs of everyday New Yorkers.”
