The Democratic Caucus of the Westchester County Board of Legislators strongly supports the New York Equal Rights Amendment and the inclusion of reproductive rights within New York State’s Constitution. We are disappointed by the recent ruling from a Supreme Court in Livingston County, which denies voters the chance to weigh in on this vital issue. We commend Attorney General Letitia James for her steadfast defense of these fundamental rights and remain confident in her ongoing advocacy for all New Yorkers.
