2016 Executive Actions Pertaining to Gender Identity and Sexual Orientation

During the past several months, Gov. Andrew Cuomo has taken several controversial executive actions. Two of those actions relate to issues of great concern to New Yorkers for Constitutional Freedoms (sexual orientation change and gender identity); in each instance, Gov. Cuomo has bypassed the Legislature to implement proposals that repeatedly failed to pass the New York State Senate. NYCF supports the legislative reversal of the Governor’s executive actions, as well as broad-based legislative action to curtail gubernatorial efforts to usurp the Legislature’s authority.
