Default Criminal Bill of Rights: NY Dems pass bill allowing New Yorkers with felony

“When people have made mistakes and served their time, they’ve been rehabilitated. When they reenter society they should be able to participate fully in our democracy. Serving on juries and being able to vote are both part of being equal, full citizens in a free democracy,” Benjamin said.

The bill passed 36-25, with four Long Island Democrats joining Republican ranks to vote against the measure. Sens. Jim Gaughran, Monica Martinez, John Brooks and Anna Kaplan all voted against the bill.
