As a quick update (and not surprisingly after the extensive news coverage this decision received), legislators in both New York State and City are now seeking to close this gap in the law. State Senator Liz Krueger has already introduced legislation in the New York State Senate, while Councilwoman Gale Brewer has promised to introduce similar legislation before the City Council. We will keep you posted on any further legislative activity.
