Gustavo Rivera on Rent Extender
June 17th, 2011
Sen. Gustavo Rivera’s singing may not have moved the rent control debate forward but he thinks his vote against the first extender, along with other Senate Dems, may have gotten negotiations into gear.
“I am glad that negotiations are moving forward so that we can come back to Albany on Monday and pass stronger rent laws. With the Governor’s support and the help of the Assembly, I believe we can get this done and vote for a bill that not only extends, but also strengthens tenant protections,” said Rivera.
Sen. Liz Krueger joked as she was leaving the chamber after the hastily reassembled session to pass the rent extender that she hoped not to have to vote on another extender on Monday. Who knows–this is Albany.By David King on June 17, 2011, 6:59 pm
