“The new coalition government, the IDC and the Republicans, are committed to seeing major pieces of progressive legislation pass the Senate chamber when we return to Albany in January,” Klein said. “Working with the governor and our colleagues, I know that we will be able to pass some major progressive reforms, such an increase in the minimum wage, our reform of stop-and-frisk and serious campaign-finance reform.”
