WHEREAS, on January 3, 2016, I issued Executive Order Number 151, effective January 5, 2016, declaring a disaster emergency to mitigate the threat that inclement winter weather poses to the life, health, and safety of the State’s citizens, particularly to persons who are homeless, throughout the State; and

 

WHEREAS, on January 12, 2016, I issued Executive Order Number 152 to suspend certain provisions of law relating to State contracts to permit State agencies to quickly secure and prepare facilities to assist localities in safely sheltering the homeless from inclement winter weather and provide necessary services at those facilities, which Executive Order will expire on February 11, 2016; and

 

WHEREAS, Section 29-a of the Executive Law provides that no suspension of laws shall be made for a period in excess of thirty days, provided, however, that upon reconsideration of all of the relevant facts and circumstances, the suspension may be extended for additional thirty-day periods;

 

NOW, THEREFORE, I, ANDREW M. CUOMO, Governor of the State of New York, by virtue of the authority vested in me by Section 29-a of Article 2-B of the Executive Law, and after having reconsidered all of the relevant facts and circumstances, do hereby order that the suspension of provisions of law ordered by Executive Order Number 152 shall continue through March 12, 2016.
