“After the horrific violence we witnessed in Brooklyn and Buffalo, our Conference called upon the Domestic Terrorism Task Force to finally convene after inexcusably sitting dormant for two years. Today, they begin to do their work to help make our state a safer place.
I believe this meeting is an important step toward protecting residents and communities from the violence we have seen permeate our state in recent months. Our Conference stands ready to work with the task force to develop impactful legislation and long-term solutions to the unbearable violence plaguing our communities. Together, we must create a stronger, safer New York.”
