New York: State Senator proposes recall law, with support of GOP Chairman and ex-Governor Pataki

New York State Senator Joseph Griffo (R) has proposed a recall law (which he has been doing since 2009), one that the New York State Republican Party Committee Chairman Nick Langworthy has also been pushing. New York currently does not have recall provisions for any state or local office. 

The impetus for the GOP's support is supposedly the coronavirus pandemic-related use of emergency powers by Governor Andrew Cuomo, though every so often we hear of an attempt to adopt a recall in New York. Former Governor George Pataki is now backing the recall. 

There has been a recent push for a bill allowing for special district recalls. This sounds a little more likely to move forward.
