Governor Andrew Cuomo unveiled a series of proposals during his State of the State address, including banning repeat sexual offenders from the MTA.
Subway cars should not be feeding grounds for predators. We want people to take mass transit and we are right in that desire,” Cuomo said.
The governor also promised to tackle the rising problem of hate crimes in New York. He said hate and discrimination have no place in the state.
We will prosecute these crimes to the greatest extent of the law, and we must now change the law to address this growing threat. Let's acknowledge displays of hate-filled mass violence for what they are: they are domestic terrorism. That's what they are,” Cuomo said.
