Thank you for joining this week’s edition of the Albany Update.

While most of our organization’s attention is focused on the State Legislature, we do engage on key federal issues as well. Last week’s vote regarding the so-called Equality Act was a prime example. We’ll learn more about the bill and which congressional members were for and against this dangerous piece of legislation.

Then, we’ll take a look at the Dignity for All Stu...

Thank you for joining this week’s edition of the Albany Update.

Early in the pandemic, Governor Andrew Cuomo was praised for his handling of the Coronavirus crisis, but new facts are emerging and along with the facts—there’s a newly-empowered Legislature emerging as well. No longer cowering in its shell, a legislative turtle that has been slow to take action may—as early as this week—clip Cuomo’s wings.

Then, while tensions couldn’...

Thank you for joining me for this week’s edition of the Albany Update.

We’ll begin today’s program by shining a light on the bombshell report that Governor Andrew Cuomo’s Administration intentionally covered up the death count numbers in New York’s nursing homes to shield the information from the U.S. Department of Justice. The inadvertent admission is sending shockwaves through the state.

Then, we’ll look at some positive legislat...

The news has been riddled with Twitter’s attempt to silence voices that are viewed as politically incorrect, but it isn’t just big tech seeking to silence truth. Recently, Pres. Joe Biden issued executive orders that deny basic biological realities and now even the National Association of Realtors has taken troubling action in this regard.

Next up, New York Stat...

Last week, we saw the inauguration of President Joe Biden. We’ll take a look at some of the President’s early actions and his stated plans for his first 100 days in office.

Second, cancel culture is strong. There are some who would seek to publicize and doxx donors who give to causes that may not be politically correct. I’ll update you on a court case that seeks to protect your privacy as it pertains to your charitable donations.

It is anticipated that President-elect Joe Biden will be inaugurated this week. Tensions are high across America and Christians should be especially focused on praying for our nation this week.

We also are going to see some changes in the U.S. Senate. We’ll be taking a look at the expected incoming Majority Leader, Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY).

Thank you for joining me for this week’s edition of the Albany Update podcast.

We’ll begin today’s program by looking at President-elect Joe Biden’s bad pick for Secretary of Health and Human Services. If Joe Biden is inaugurated and the U.S. Senate approves the nomination, it could strike a blow to many of the pro-life gains made under President Donald Trump’s tenure.

On a more positive development, Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed a bill...

If you thought the great mask divide of 2020 was contentious, get ready for the vaccine mandate debate of 2021. A New York state lawmaker has introduced a bill that, if passed and signed into law, could lead to a COVID-19 vaccination mandate.

Then, it’s Christmas week. Here at New Yorkers for Constitutional Freedoms, we thank the Lord for sending Jesus C...

Next week, New York’s Electoral College convenes in the State Capitol, but they meet while a Texas lawsuit challenging the election results heads to the Supreme Court. [UPDATE: Since the time of this program’s recording, the Supreme Court rejected this case.]

First, we need to talk about that Supreme Court ruling against Governor Andrew Cuomo’s religious gathering restrictions. What does it mean for churches?

Then, in a sign that the next legislative session is rapidly approaching, we’ll see that legislative conferences in the State Assembly re-elected their leadership.

Third, there is new polling that shows ...
