State Senator getting ready for session start

January 10, 2003

Albany -- State Senator Michael Meyer Von Bremen of Albany says he hopes legislators from both parties can work together, when the legislature convenes Monday.

Now the Senate Minority Leader, Meyer Von Bremen is packing to leave for Atlanta. With a Republican Governor for the first time since Reconstruction, and a Republican dominated Senator, partisanship could gridlock the session.

Meyer Von Bremen said "We want to try to work together as a team. If there are differences, then we want to let them understand our position so they can seek to understand, and then try to cooperate among one another."

Meyer Von Bremen and Lt. Governor Mark Taylor have pre-filed bills on child endangerment laws and ethics legislation for the session.
