Thank you for joining this week’s edition of the Albany Update.
Recent conversation has revolved around the so-called Equality Act. As previously reported, the (In)Equality Act passed in the U.S. House of Representatives and has advanced to the U.S. Senate. Allies across the nation are working to make sure the measure falls shorts of the likely ten Republican votes it would need to become law. However, there is a new threat developing. It’s called the Fairness for All Act and unfortunately too many Republicans are falling for this euphemistically named proposal.
Also, on the federal level, Senator Rand Paul (R-Kentucky) is taking heat for a line of questioning he directed to President Joe Biden’s nominee for Assistant Secretary of Health. We’ll discuss.
Then, turning our attention back to state issues, there is a lot to cover regarding the troubles coming at Governor Andrew Cuomo—all self-inflicted wounds I might add.
And while the pressure is growing on Andrew Cuomo, he has apparently cut a deal with the Democratic Majorities in the Senate and the Assembly that will not end, but extend, his pandemic superpowers.
And finally, we learned that a national Christian adoption agency has caved to political correctness and will coordinate adoptions for same-sex couples.
Let’s get started.
