NYS consumer protection bill provides needed safeguards
When Democrats captured the New York Legislature in 2018, prognosticators predicted that New York would quickly pass progressive laws. Yet more than three years later, New Yorkers still lack the consumer protections of red and purple states like Arkansas, Georgia, North Carolina, and West Virginia.
