The Honorable Andrew M. Cuomo


Executive Chamber
State Capitol
Albany, NY 12224

Dear Governor Cuomo:

I respectfully write to request that you please work with Senate Majority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins
and Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie to bring the Legislature back as soon as possible to work together to
pass important public safety legislation regarding limousine safety.

As you know, the horrific limo crash list year in Schoharie that took the lives of 20 people, along with a
similar crash a few years back on Long Island, have shown the urgent need for stronger oversight of the
for-hire limousine industry. Several of the Schoharie victims and their families are residents of my Senate
District.

On June 6th the Senate unanimously passed an holistic package of nine limo safety bills. The Assembly
passed its own series of limo safety bills on the final day of session. Only one of the bills has passed both
houses of the legislature.

With summerjust getting into full swing, many New Yorkers will be renting limos for weddings, bachelor
and bachelorette panics, and to avoid drinking and driving when going out socially with family and friends.
I am asking you to please bring us back and work together to iron out differences in the legislation so that
we can get these limo safety laws on the books. Let’s get this done as soon as possible in memory of the
victims and to prevent future tragedies.

Thank you for your consideration.
