Gov. Cuomo isn’t ‘optimistic’ about Child Victims Act passing before legislative session’s end
By Kenneth Lovett
Gov. Cuomo on Friday said he does not see the Child Victims Act and other big-ticket items passing before the state legislative session ends next week.
Just two days after giving victims hope by introducing his own bill designed to help survivors of child sex abuse seek justice as adults, Cuomo threw a cold dose of reality on them.
The governor said while he supports the Child Victims Act and would be open to working on compromise legislation, he doesn’t see it happening.
“I’m not optimistic about passage of a Child Victims Act, but hope springs eternal,” he said.
