    • The NYS budget passed with unSAFE Act funding intact. All of the Republican State Senators voted YES on this budget. Some of them are claiming this funding was not present or that they were not aware that it was present in the budget. What we do know without question is that most of the budget bills were dropped onto the legislators’ desks at the last minute, and were voted on with a “message of necessity” from the Governor. The legislators need to vote NO on any bill that they have not read, and in fact some of them had already made such a pledge – and then violated that pledge when they voted for this budget.
