Legislative Procedures Position

The state board approved a new updated Legislative Procedures position at its January meeting which is attached and will be posted on the state website today.  Many thanks to update committee chair, Suzanne Stassevitch of the New York City League and committee members Lorrie Smith (Rensselaer) and Judy Weinstein (Rochester), and to all the local leagues who participated in the update.  Our new position should be a great help for lobbying this session and in the future.  Local leagues felt legislators should have longer terms but were concerned that legislators be held to a higher ethical standard than has been demonstrated recently. And, the state board may now consider supporting limits on the outside income of legislators.
