Pictured above is the Assembly Vote Recording Board showing the proposed legislation regarding seahorses.
“The dysfunction in Albany has reached a breaking point, and today’s debate on seahorse legislation is a prime example of that. Despite the fact I want to save my seahorse friends, I voted no on this bill in protest because of the sheer lunacy of its timing during this fiscal crisis. Over the last four weeks, the Assembly Majority has introduced trivial legislation, while continuing to send the rank-and-file members home after only a couple days of work.”
“The Assembly should be working around the clock until the budget is passed. My colleagues in the Assembly Minority and I are willing to stay in Albany and I would ask that our colleagues in the Majority do the same.”
