Byrnes: Assembly Majority Budget Fails To Safeguard NY

A Statement from Assemblywoman Marjorie Byrnes (R,C-Caledonia)

“It’s disappointing, yet unsurprising, that the Assembly Majority has rejected the governor’s proposal to restore judicial discretion and other measures to fix the bail reforms that have endangered our state for the past five years. Although I am pleased they also rejected her nonsensical upstate housing mandate, this plan still spends too much and does too little to fix the real, existing problems New Yorkers deal with day in and day out. People need Albany’s help making New York more affordable, fixing our roads, providing access to affordable internet and safeguarding our communities from the ongoing crime spree that these so-called bail reforms exacerbated. I will be voting no.”
