Friend To Hochul: To Make NY Safer We Must Address Bail Reform

Statement from Assemblyman Christopher S. Friend (R,C-Big Flats) on Gov. Hochul’s State of State

“I, along with many law-abiding New Yorkers, have been decrying the bail reform and its negative impacts on public safety in our communities. If Gov. Hochul truly wants to make New York safer, we must give judges judicial discretion. Public safety under bail reform has been an abject failure for the people of New York and it’s time to fix it.”
