Fortunato makes second call for Special Session

Since the start of the COVID-19 crisis, I’ve had serious concerns about how the governor was implementing our state’s response. Initially, we did the right thing and came together to stop the spread of the virus. However, I took exception when the administration started picking economic winners and losers with a totally inconsistent policy. You could build tax-payer funded housing, but private construction was stopped.

It is clear that the Legislature needs to step in and provide oversight to the litany of executive orders issued by the governor. It is our responsibility to our constituents to make sure that their voice is heard and that executive power is in check. We can’t do that unless we are in session. This is my second attempt to convince my colleagues that we need to act and call ourselves into session. You can read my email to them below or click here.
