Like prior years, the Legislature kept the Empire State Chapter Government Affairs Team busy. During an election year, being as engaged as possible is vital. This session, ABC:

  • ABC members sent over 2,500 voter voice advocacy letters to their elected officials
  • Spoke out at a press conference supporting legislation that creates a felony for those staging construction site accidents
  • Issued multiple memos in opposition/support regarding key pieces of legislation.
  • Received millions of views on the media pieces we had published.
