Brooklyn, NY – “Governor Hochul is once again showing her unfortunate lack of competence as a leader. Yesterday, state legislators were rushed to Albany for a special session — at considerable expense to taxpayers — only to learn that Mrs. Hochul had no legislation prepared for them to consider. Now, Mrs. Hochul is seeking to rationalize calling legislators back by pushing half-considered, knee-jerk measures that deserve robust debate, not the rushed passage of a PR stunt.

“With every passing week it is becoming increasingly clear that Gov. Hochul is not up to the job of governor. Thankfully, Congressman Lee Zeldin is fully prepared to take the reins of state government in January. This week’s special session debacle has been downright embarrassing.”
