Legislative Bill Tracking

State Issues

  •  The State Legislature remains adjourned, as it is not yet certain when they will reconvene for a future legislative session. NYBA continues to be engaged with legislative members and staff on a number of issues that impact the industry.

Federal Issues

  • The House of Representatives passed a stop gap spending bill, after much negotiation, to avert a government shutdown on December 11. The Senate has taken a procedural vote to advance the measure, and expects to pass it next week. Congress is expected to enter an intensely partisan period surrounding the confirmation of a new U.S. Supreme Court Justice, as a result of the death on Friday of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
