34 Cosponsors & No Vote: Child Safe Products Act Stalled by Senate Leaders
Statement from Saima Anjam, Government Affairs Associate
“What message does it send about the state of our democracy in Albany when a majority of Senators cosponsor common-sense legislation to protect kids and hold toxic chemical companies accountable, and yet the bill remains stalled in the Environmental Conservation Committee?
With broad bipartisan support, Senator Jeff Klein and Dean Skelos should not block passage of The Child Safe Products Act.
This legislation is sponsored by Republican Senator Phil Boyle, with the support of Senators Carlucci, Fuschillo, Lanza, LaValle, Martins, Robach, Savino and many more. It would very likely pass unanimously and without debate if Senators Klein and Skelos would simply allow a vote.”
