Curb the Governor’s Abusive Power

An effort is underway to curb Governor Cuomo’s abusive power. Republicans in the Legislature and some moderate Democrats object to his sweeping authority. They want to overturn the enabling mandate that allows him to “provide any directive necessary to respond to the disaster.” He can also “temporarily suspend or modify any statute, local law, ordinance, order, rule or regulation.” Rule by executive order is clearly in violation of the State Constitution. We the citizens of New York demand a return to tripartite government – executive, legislative, and judicial branches. The days of Kingship went out centuries ago. Curb dictator Cuomo’s abusive rule. Support the drive to rein in his authoritative power.
