Somewhere between a governor vetoing a bill and simply signing legislation that makes it to their desk is the power to issue an approval message and adopt subsequent chapter amendment, which has become a popular tool for Gov. Kathy Hochul.
We explore how chapter amendments come together, consider why they’re being used at comparatively high levels by Hochul, and discuss whether state lawmakers should play hard ball over the issue.
Our guests are Beth Garvey, a shareholder at Greenberg Traurig and former counsel to then-Gov. Andrew Cuomo, and Doug Clark, a co-managing partner at Shenker, Russo & Clark and a former senior associate counsel for the Assembly majority.
And a reminder that we’re hosting a free, live recording of the show at 5 p.m. on Jan. 29 at the Bull Moose Club in Albany, with NY WFP co-Director Jasmine Gripper and Tusk Strategies NY practice head Shontell Smith. Reserve your space on Eventbrite.
