With a couple weeks to go in the legislative session, PEF is actively lobbying lawmakers to pass the union’s priorities. Our top issues can be found at this link (scroll down to the tab that says “Lobby your Legislator: End-of-Session Issues PEF Cares About”) and we are encouraging all members to send letters to their lawmakers supporting PEF’s end-of-session priorities.
In addition, as issues continue to be discussed in Albany, PEF’s legislative department is busy drafting support and/or oppose memos specific to legislation. Among the bills firmly opposed by PEF is so-called ‘Less is More’ parole reform. We have updated our opposition memo based on the latest bills under consideration in the Assembly and Senate and you can read it here.
