Hoylman’s agenda

The New York Law Journal asks incoming Senate Judiciary Committee chairman Brad Hoylman what his agenda items are:

Q: Have you thought about what your first priorities will be as the new chair of the Judiciary Committee?

A: I look at the priorities through the lens of the Senate Democratic agenda, and at the top of that list is the Child Victims Act … Certainly another one in a similar theme is creating what’s called an Extreme Risk Protection Order, as it pertains to gun safety. It would allow individuals, family members or police to seek a court order to temporarily restrict an individual’s access to a handgun if they’re in danger of harming themselves or other people. It’s a top priority among gun safety advocates and Senate Democrats …”

No surprises here.
