Central New York’s delegation of state lawmakers has been busy in Albany this week voting on several pieces of legislation aimed at reforming police conduct. The final bills should clear the senate Wednesday.
New York is one of the first to take up such measures amid protests here and nationwide calling for change after the death of George Floyd. Most of the bills have been passed by the assembly for years, and this is the first time they’re seeing daylight in the senate. Senator Rachel May says people of all stripes seem to be questioning police behavior.
