The New York State Senate adjourned for the summer without taking up AB 9487/SB 7290. This means that the New York state spay/neuter fund will not yet be authorized to fund Trap-Neuter-Return.
Thank you to everyone who contacted their State Assemblymember and Senator about this bill. Because of you, the State Assembly did take the important step to pass the bill. Unfortunately, the Senate did not act in time to do the same.
Even though these bills failed to pass this legislative session, we are optimistic for the future and will stay engaged in this issue and let you know how you can help.
