Assemblyman Colin Schmitt Statement on Conclusion of Successful 2022 NYS Legislative Session

ALBANY, NY — Assemblyman Colin J. Schmitt (R,C,I,LBT,SAM - New Windsor), today, released the following statement, amid the conclusion of the 2022 New York State legislative session, where 5 bills the Assemblyman prime sponsored were passed into law, in addition to the passage of 10 bills he co-sponsored or multi-sponsored in the State Assembly. Schmitt also had 3 prime sponsored resolutions adopted by the Assembly unanimously along with 35 multi-sponsored resolutions. 4 additional bills made it through the entire Assembly committee process but were killed due to inaction in the State Senate. 

“I am proud to deliver on my promise to produce real results for the Hudson Valley in my final State Assembly legislative session” Assemblyman Colin J. Schmitt stated. “My team and I are proud of the accomplishments for our district this session including passing 5 prime sponsored bipartisan pieces of legislation and 10 co- and multi- sponsored bills- one of the highest amounts for a minority party member in Albany. We were also successful in the push to suspend the state gas tax and to secure middle-class tax cuts to provide relief for our small businesses and farms, resulting in over $4.6 billion in tax relief for Hudson Valley residents and taxpayers alike. It’s been my utmost honor to represent the 99th Assembly District and I will continue to fight for our Hudson Valley values to generate real-life benefits for families, local businesses, and our communities.”
