The 2023 Legislative Session is scheduled to end on June 8th. These final few weeks is when 90% of all legislation will be moved to the Assembly and Senate Floor for votes.

Now is the time to make sure we reach out to the EnCon Committee members and Leadership in both the Assembly and Senate, your legislators and the bill sponsors to move Crossbow Legislation, A2940 & S3191, to the floor for a vote. But time is limited and IMMEDIATE ACTION is imperative!

Some of the oppositions past friends are no longer in Albany, giving us the opportunity to show the vast support for crossbow inclusion that exists. But this will take everyone, and I mean EVERYONE to reach out TODAY!

I know there are many that believe we can not overcome NYB's efforts. That is only because of their HYPE. The fact is, NYB membership has consistently shrunk since 2005. Their financial reports from 2005 through 2020 indicate their membership income from membership has declined by at least 54%, while NY Crossbow Coalition's 2019 income from membership exceeded NYB's 2005 income from membership. Although there are many factors that prevent a direct correlation from membership income to total membership, it does show the trend in their support vs ours.

Don't believe the NYB chest pounding rhetoric! NYCC membership far outnumbers NYB membership. Why are they perceived to be so big? Besides having had entrenched allies in Albany for a couple of decades, NYB's diminishing membership is LASER FOCUSED on contacting legislators when needed. And not just 25% of them. ALL OF THEM!
