Support New York State’s women’s suffrage centennial commission for 2017. Both houses of the New York State Legislature approved the creation of the suffrage centennial commission during the 2015 session. Now it’s time for Governor Andrew Cuomo to sign the bill. It’s said to have been pushed to the top of the pile of bills to sign in the near future. Once the bill is signed, the push is on to get $2.9 million funding for the commission’s work.
