New York Bill A1123

I discussed this bill previously and I must admit I am a little behind in getting the update available. As you can probably imagine, had the bill passed, the news would have been more forthcoming.

On May 11th, 2004 the committee agreed to "hold" the bill making it a non-issue for the remainder of this legislative session. Chairman Roger Green was integral in getting the bill held (this is not good). However, here is where it gets interesting - Roger Green resigned his position on June 1, 2004 after pleading guilty to receiving free rides from contractors that he then turned around and billed the state for.

The author of the bill is David Sidikman and he can be contacted here:
New York State Assembly
146A Manetto Hill Road
Plainview, NY 11803
516-822-5590
FAX-822-5597

As well as all members of the New York State Assembly can be contacted through the state website: New York State Assembly

A good summary article is available through familylawreformnow.com.

I encourage everyone to read the article at family law reform and then to contact all the appropriate state legislatures to express your feelings on the handling of this bill and to contact David Sidikman in support of his bill and encourage him to keep fighting.
