Now Law: Wimberly, Holley, Tucker, Sumter & Quijano Bill to Require Racial and Ethnic Impact Statements in Proposed Legislation

Legislation sponsored by Assembly Democrats Benjie Wimberly, Jamel Holley, Cleopatra Tucker, Shavonda Sumter and Annette Quijano to encourage lawmakers to consider the impact proposed legislation would have on racial and ethnic minorities has been signed into law.

Legislation sponsored by Assembly Democrats Annette Quijano, Thomas Giblin, Benjie Wimberly & Eliana Pintor Marin to abolish the Waterfront Commission of New York Harbor has been signed into law.

"The commission's stranglehold on our ports is hurting business," said Quijano (D-Union). "While there is still a need to regulate this business to ensure fairness and safety, this job should not be done by the commission.
