New York Governor Kathy Hochul Signs Bill To Study Slavery Reparations

New York Governor Kathy Hochul has signed into law a bill that will study the effects of slavery to consider reparations for black New Yorkers. This law will create a commission similar to the group that California recently put together. And, just the same as California, the group will submit their findings in a report for what recommendations will look like. The deadline for the report is one year after the commission’s first meeting. The findings will be nonbinding, which means there will be no requirement to actually do anything… just like California. Black “leader” Al Sharpton was in attendance when Kathy Hochul signed the bill into law. His presence is just the same as the new law, empty and only symbolic in nature.
