Public Affairs & Legislation Update- 4/25/19

From Daeha Ko, member of the Public Affairs & Legislation subcommittee:

Thank you so much for the round of applause during my pitch for the bill A1248/S1763A, the Free and Fair Elections Resolution. I was not expecting this and was admittedly touch by the reception.

Attached are copies of both the Assembly and Senate version. The Assembly bill is currently under going revision in Section 2C lines 23-31 to reflect the Senate’s bill which is up to date regarding US States that have passed the resolution.

Also included is a legal briefing complete with citations for quick references on the legality of Article V limited convention process and the checks and balances system designed to enforce a convention to propose an Amendment limited to one topic, specifically in this case the consequences of Citizen’s United.

Here are the links to the to the Assembly Page and Senate Page with the current list of co-sponsors. Mind you the list is rapidly changing with lawmakers quickly signing on. Recommend reading the memorandum written by Assm Linda Rosenthal of the need for this resolution in the link above.

If you really feel like doing some reading, I have also attached a DOJ report on the Article V process plus a packet we have been handing to NY State Legislators.

If you have any questions, feel free to reach to me anytime anyplace. Thank you for taking this under consideration.

Daeha Ko
AD50 County Committee Member, ED 30
Wolf-PAC NY Legislative Director,
