In the Assembly, A.3525 has cleared two important hurdles, but still needs to be passed by the Ways and Means and the Rules Committees before it lands on the Assembly floor for a full vote.
In the Senate, S.3835 has stalled in the Consumer Protection Committee which has adjourned for this session. However, the leader of the Senate has the power to push this bill directly into the Rules Committee so it can be passed there and move to the Senate floor for a full vote.
