New York legislature to strip Andrew Cuomo of his COVID-19 emergency powers

March 3, 2021

According to this story the New York legislature has reached a deal to strip Governor Andrew Cuomo–who wrote a book on how to lead the people through a pandemic and how wonderfully he handled the COVID-19 pandemic compared to Donald Trump, even though his policies led to the deaths of thousands of senior citizens–of his emergency COVID-19 powers. Here is more:

Legislators from New York’s Assembly and state Senate struck a deal Tuesday to strip Gov. Andrew Cuomo of his pandemic-linked emergency powers and return matters like lockdowns to local control.

The deal would reverse emergency powers granted to Cuomo exactly a year ago, in the early days of the COVID pandemic, that gave him free rein to order measures like quarantines.

“I think everyone understands where we were back in March and where we are now. We certainly see the need for a quick response but also want to move toward a system of increased oversight, and review. The public deserves to have checks and balances. Our proposal would create a system with increased input while at the same time ensuring New Yorkers continue to be protected,” Senate Majority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins said in a statement.

The Governor has become entangled in a sex scandal which has taken the focus (purposely) off of his disastrous reign as King of New York and I think the legislature is sugaring their reasoning up to let Andrew Cuomo save some face, but hopefully this is the beginning of a path which leads to his resignation.

Once a person usurps this type of power he or she does not willingly give it back so good luck to New York trying to wrestle this power away from him.
