STATEMENT FROM NEW YORK STATE CONSERVATIVE PARTY ON HOCHUL BAIL REFORM FIASCO
Brooklyn-NY…“Governor Kathy Hochul sought almost nothing on bail reform and got even less. This was a complete capitulation to radical elements in the State Legislature.
“The hands of judges remain tied in sentencing criminals, and there is no change whatsoever to the cashless bail law that has driven the ongoing violent crime wave across the state.
“Governor Hochul whiffed as well, fortunately, on her senseless attempt to force new zoning laws on suburban communities, the lynchpin of her annual agenda. This is without question the weakest governorship in modern memory. We shudder to think what’s coming.” — State Conservative Party Chairman Gerard Kassar
