“As an eternal optimist, I was glad to hear  Assembly Democrats were looking to finally remove the governor’s emergency powers. However, the bill they introduced today was anything but a revocation of the governor’s emergency powers. It allows the governor to maintain control of the process, and further, those State Democrats are only interested in sharing that power.”

Assemblyman Robert Smullen represents the 118th Assembly District, which includes Hamilton and Fulton counties as well as parts of Herkimer, Oneida, and St. Lawrence counties.
