Assemblyman Joe DeStefano (R,C,I-Medford) is pleased to join his Minority colleagues in support of a resolution which would terminate the state disaster emergency declared by Executive Order 202. The current 7-day positivity rate in New York state is 0.5% and on Long Island is 0.4%.
“As more people are getting vaccinated, the numbers continue to trend downward and restrictions are being lifted, it is time to remove this executive order, return to normal and begin rebuilding our economy,” said DeStefano. “The governor’s emergency powers have remained unchecked for over a year and he has shown just how misguided he is. This is long overdue; we cannot leave Albany this week without removing this order.”
