Jane Corwin
ALBANY — Two more pieces of the "Women's Equality Agenda" passed the Assembly today — to the delight of Assemblywoman Jane Corwin and Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

The bills are designed to protect pregnant women in the workplace and decrease sexual harassment.

Cuomo — a Democrat — and Corwin — a Republican from Clarence — each issued statements heralding their passage. Those statements both follow in their entirety.

I am pleased to announce that the Assembly has brought two more components of the Women’s Equality Agenda to an individual vote today. The proposals will provide greater protection for pregnant women in the workplace as well as expand safeguards against sexual harassment for all employees in all industries across the state – a proposal that I have long supported and sponsor legislation on Assembly Bill 1197.
— Assemblywoman Jane Corwin
Today, the Assembly passed two important pieces of legislation that strengthen New York’s role as a national leader in standing up for women’s equality. With the long overdue passage of bills that expand protections against both sexual harassment and pregnancy discrimination, we are ensuring that equal rights are protected in New York. I was proud to introduce these two measures as part of the Women’s Equality Act more than two years ago, and I look forward to signing them into law as we continue to build a more fair society.
— Gov. Andrew Cuomo
