AP: No bills passed NY State Senate in January

Comments from KW: For years, all the good, “progressive” Democrats in New York would blame all of our problems on gridlock, because the Republicans held the State Senate. Funny thing. Now, the Democratic Party controls the Governor’s Office, the Attorney General’s Office, the Assembly and the Senate. Still, amazingly, the Democrats have not brought us peace, prosperity, or a slew of positive, social justice bills. Funny thing about that…

from Newsday:

ALBANY, N.Y. – Now under Democratic control, New York‘s Senate didn’t pass a single bill in January _ an unusual bout of inaction compared to past years.

Democrats took control of the state Senate in January for the first time in 43 years with a 32-30 majority, and it’s the first time in at least 14 years that no bills were passed in the first month of the six-month session. Some Republicans have said it’s fair to give Democrats a bit of time to get comfortable in their new role as the majority, but note that their patience could wane in February.
