“We have seen acceptance of our bills in the Capitol and are grateful to our sponsors, and co-sponsors. We have made great progress, and fund-raising partnerships like the one created with Rocky Patel will be important in our continued push toward passage,” stated Glynn in a recent press release.
The NYTA is currently working with legislatures to gain broader support for these bills. The trade association has also been working to create new ways for New York state shops and consumers to reach out directly to legislators to raise awareness of the bills and seek their support.
