Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced 12 members of the New York congressional delegation joined his growing campaign to legalize surrogacy and ban the gay and trans panic legal defense before the end of session on June 19. Both bills were proposed in the Governor's FY 2020 Executive Budget but were not adopted by the legislature, leaving them to be considered outside of the budget during the remainder of the legislative session. The congressional delegation members joined the Governor's coalition today following a rally yesterday at the LGBT Community Center where the Governor was joined by several LGBTQ advocacy groups, along with Bravo TV producer and host Andy Cohen. On May 30, the Governor launched a campaign and website dedicated to passing the two proposals before the end of session.
