State Republicans move forward to remove Cuomo’s emergency powers

Feb 23, 2021 | ,

Republicans in the state Senate planned on introducing a bill as a hostile amendment to revoke Governor Andrew Cuomo’s emergency powers.

Speaking at a press conference in Albany, Senator Pam Helming said this bill is very similar to one she has repeatedly introduced but now it is hopeful more Democrats will get on board since details of the State Attorney General’s Office investigation into COVID-19 nursing home death data was released.

Western New York Assemblyman Andy Goddell said the 11 last months of Executive Rule is not how state government is set up to run.

Democratic Assemblyman Ron Kim from Queens was expected to introduce similar legislation in the Assembly Monday.
