Assemblyman Jeff Gallahan Statement on Governor Hochul’s State of The State

“I have been a strong advocate for the implementation of term limits and I am encouraged by Gov. Hochul’s announced plan to implement term limits for statewide elected officials. With this announcement, it is my hope that the governor will work with all New Yorkers to make better legislative decisions, including repealing the disastrous bail reform law plaguing New Yorkers. Bail reform has prioritized criminals over victims and increased violent crime in our community. While New Yorkers live with rising crime and a lack of COVID-19 testing options, the governor gave few details on how and when she plans to address these issues. They cannot be ignored any longer. I look forward to working with my colleagues throughout this legislative session to hold our government accountable, combat the rise in crime and restore common sense to our state government.”
