(Albany, NY) The Senate today announced it will hold a second joint public hearing on housing discrimination on Long Island, as uncovered by a Newsday investigation. The Senate Committees on Consumer Protection, Housing, and Investigations and Government Operations previously held a hearing to determine how best to address this unacceptable situation. The Senate Majority took the rare step of issuing subpoenas and compelling testimony from individuals and organizations who were invited to testify at the first hearing but refused to attend or submit testimony. This follow-up hearing was initially scheduled for April 17, but had to be postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic and will now be held virtually on September 17, 2020 at 10:00 AM.
