EFFORTS TO STOP BLOCKBUSTING SHOULD CONTINUE, BUT SEEM TO “BECOME INACTIVE” IN THE NYS SENATE…

BLOCKBUSTING, which has been covered here at length has been going on for some time. In 2014 Senator Avella Introduced a “”Cease and Desist” Bill to combat unwanted Real Estate Solicitations.”
In looking into what happened to that bill, an article entitled “Avella, civic leaders call on Legislature to curb real estate solicitation in Queens” from the TimesLedger from 2015 states that:
The bill was referred to the state Senate Judiciary Committee in January, but has since been inactive.
The real estate solicitations cease-and-desist program for Queens residents was originally introduced in 1989, but was cut back in 2009 to only allow residents of a few select neighborhoods to be added to the list.
If passed by the Legislature and signed by Gov. Andrew Cuomo this fall, the act would go into effect on the 13th day after it becomes law.
Governor Cuomo has already left many of us thinking that he is a puppet of the ultra-Orthodox and Hasidic communities who came out heavily in favor of his candidacy. This is just another piece of legislation regarding the ultra-Orthodox community that has “been inactive.”
