Local Law Approved Amending Charter Language for the Office of Human Rights and Human Rights Commission

Tuesday, November 19, 2019

The Legislature, after a public hearing, adopted a Local Law amending the County Charter, Chapter 26, regarding the Office of Human Rights and Human Rights Commission, incorporating various wording changes to the section, resulting from extensive review of the document involving members of the Human Rights Commission, legislators and County staff. Approval came by unanimous vote, with Legislators Glenn Morey and Dan Klein excused.  Both Legislature Chair Martha Robertson and Health and Human Services Chair Shawna Black thanked everyone involved for their work.  Said Legislator Black, “I thank everyone.  I know the Commission worked very hard to review it…I think we have a really good product here.”
