On Tuesday, Gov. Kathy Hochul confirmed she is convening an Extraordinary Session of the Legislature. The special session will start tomorrow and Hochul says the group will:
- Extend the eviction moratorium to January 15 and provide relief for tenants & landlords
- Make open meetings safer & more accessible
- Confirm nominees to the State’s cannabis program
Hochul is expected to name Brooklyn Assembly member Tremaine S. Wright the Chair of the Cannabis Control Board and Christopher Alexander the program’s Executive Director, according to NY1 reporter Zack Fink.
Confirming nominees to the State’s cannabis program should help speed up the process of legal marijuana sales in New York. Sales have been delayed because former Gov. Cuomo didn’t fill key positions on the Cannabis Control Board, WGRZ reports.
“We lost five and a half months because there was not a decision simply to name an executive director and a chairperson. Too much time has lapsed, I will be in the process of naming those individuals shortly,” Hochul told reporters on Tuesday.
Hochul’s nominees, which must be approved by the state Senate, are needed to approve new marijuana rules including sales, the New York Post reports.
In March, New York lawmakers struck a deal to make New York State the 15th state in the country to legalize recreational marijuana. At the time officials confirmed legal retail sales of weed could take months to two years to start.
