Marcos A. Crespo - Governor Cuomo Signs My Bill Into Law
On Thursday, January 2nd my bill requiring all Individuals engaged in the design, construction, operation, inspection, maintenance and repair of elevators to be licensed by New York State was signed by Governor Cuomo.
"By creating a statewide license, a uniform standard, and increasing the accountability for the installation and repair of elevators across our state we will not only improve the safety conditions for this workforce, but also ensure a safer and more reliable service for all New Yorker's who rely daily on elevators to go about their lives and work. There is no doubt that this legislation will help prevent serious injury and loss of life for elevator installers and repair personnel and users alike. I'm grateful to have worked with Governor Cuomo, Senator Diane Savino, labor leaders, advocates and our labor committee staff to finally see this bill become law.
