Smith Sponsors Legislation
State Senator Malcolm Smith has co-sponsored legislation that would create a joint bipartisan Senate/Assembly Task Force to effectively make the governing process more open and better serve the public. The bill, which unanimously passed in the Senate, is now in front of the Assembly.
“By creating a bicameral, bipartisan task force, this legislation would act to enhance the exchange of information between the two houses, and increase public access and legislative review,” said Smith. “Increasing the effectiveness of government is one of my major concerns, and this legislation would help to improve the process tremendously.”
