Statement of New York City Bar Association President Carey R. Dunne on Governor Cuomo’s State of the State Address

The New York City Bar Association applauds Governor’s Cuomo’s decision to include four key areas of law reform in today’s State of the State Address: strengthening gun control laws; taking steps to reduce wrongful convictions; achieving true equality for women; and reforming New York’s campaign finance system. The City Bar has been advocating for these reforms and looks forward to working with the Governor and the Legislature in the months ahead to help achieve these important goals.
