New York Legislature Adjourns
The 2017 legislative session adjourned shortly before midnight on June 21, 2017.
Lawmakers adjourned the session without a deal to extend New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio’s control over New York City Schools. The current agreement lapses on June 30, 2017.
Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie stated there is no plan to return as the Assembly is comfortable with the bill they passed in May.
Heastie’s statement is available at http://assembly.state.ny.us/Press/20170622/.
