We also urge the Legislature to support the following bill:

  • S3257 (Hoylman-Sigal) – Limits commercial FOIL exemption. This bill is also supported by BetaNYC, Citizens Union, Common Cause NY, League of Women Voters of New York State, New York News Publishers Association, and NYPIRG. This bill is on the Senate Floor Calendar.
