NYS Senator Skoufis Talks About COVID-19 Bills, Committee Work

Jun 1, 2020

In one of its first major moves since the coronavirus pandemic took hold, the New York state legislature last week passed a package of COVID-19-related bills. Democratic State Senator James Skoufis co-sponsored many of the bills that range from education needs to price gouging penalties. Skoufis, who chairs the Committee on Investigations and Government Operations, spoke with WAMC’s Hudson Valley Bureau Chief Allison Dunne about some of the measures along with whether his committee will be looking into Governor Andrew Cuomo’s actions regarding nursing homes during the pandemic.

New York state Senator James Skoufis’s 39th District includes parts of Orange, Rockland and Ulster Counties.
