Chairman Issues Statement on Governor's Announcement

Monticello, NY – Sullivan County Legislature Chairman Luis Alvarez responded today to Governor Andrew Cuomo’s announcement that he will include the long-stalled Child Victims Act in his Executive Budget Proposal for 2019-2020:

“Justice is long overdue for the many adults who suffered at the hands of abusers years ago, and it is time our court system caught up with those crimes. Having witnessed as a former police officer the lifelong impacts of sexual abuse, I applaud Governor Cuomo and the State Legislature for moving forward on the Child Victims Act.”
