ALBANY, NY – State Senator Cathy Young is urging the New York State Assembly to pass term limits. Term limits legislation has passed in the state senate, and Sen. Young says the Assembly needs to vote yes, on this bill as well. “The Republican Senate Majority has passed this important reform because it helps ensure trust in state government. The public deserves nothing less than the best from their elected officials. Term limits for leaders and committee chairs encourage new ideas and prevent one person from becoming too powerful,” said Senator Young. “We have passed this bill every year since 2013. Unfortunately, the Assembly’s New York City leadership has yet to join us in enacting this initiative. It is a great reform and I am hopeful that this is the year it will get done,” Senator Young said.
