At today's annual reorganization meeting, Legislator Peter Savage was reelected Chair of the Erie County Legislature. Under Chairman Savage's leadership last year, the legislature passed several major pieces of legislation, including a ban on conversion therapy for minors, a tough new ethics bill and one of the strongest housing bills in the nation. Legislator April N.M. Baskin, District 2, was re-elected majority leader for 2019. Both her bail reform and NFTA captive rider resolutions recently passed with unanimous votes.
