"Our first obligation as elected officials is to ensure public safety, and there's indisputable evidence showing speed cameras save children's lives. The Senate Republicans' refusal to return to Albany and pass this legislation is a complete dereliction of that duty.

 

"This is not an ideological issue — Senator Golden and his conference are playing politics with the lives of children, and it's transparent. I have said for weeks, there is no need for me to call a special session as the Assembly has already passed the bill during session — all that is left is for the Senate Republicans to act.  

 

"Here's a tip for Senator Golden — maybe he should hold a protest in front of Senator Flanagan's office and demand he bring his own conference back to Albany to vote for speed cameras on the merits, like they should have done in June. If it helps the Senator, I will repeat the call for the Senate Republicans to immediately return to Albany and pass the bill that sits on their desk — I will sign it the same day."
