Buttenschon starts 2022 legislative session with the passage of new bills


Assemblywoman Marianne Buttenschon, D-119, Marcy, noted her first week of the 2022 legislative session was a success, as she helped pass several bills to improve communities across New York State, according to a statement from her office.

She supported legislation which was approved which authorizes any public body to hold meetings remotely and without in-person access during the COVID-19 state disaster emergency (A.8591).

She also helped to pass a bill that would raise the maximum fine for telemarketers who contact New Yorkers on the National Do Not Call Registry to $20,000 (A.83). The fine is currently set at $11,000.

In addition, she sponsored legislation to enact the Marketing and Expanding Export Trade – New York (MEET-NY) Act and direct the state Department of Health (DOH) to study the use of solid antimicrobial materials for touch surfaces in public buildings (A.1177; A.998-A). Anyone who wishes to learn more about Buttenschon’s legislative goals or who has questions or concerns about proposed legislation can contact her district office at 315-732-1055 or Buttenschonm@nyassembly.gov.

“I look forward to working with my Assembly colleagues and encourage anyone to call or email my office if they have any questions or concerns about specific legislation,” the Marcy Democrat added in a statement.
