A top New York senator said that lawmakers and the governor have successfully resolved an outstanding issue in marijuana legalization negotiations related to impaired driving, setting the stage for a formal introduction of new bill text within days.
Senate Majority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins (D) said on Tuesday that the legislature is “really, really, really close on marijuana” following negotiations with executive staff office over recent weeks. “We have gotten past the impasse of the impaired driving.”
“We are looking to get language that will I think be satisfactory in the next day or so,” she said during a virtual press briefing.
