Q21. The proposal also calls for making New York's law consistent with the current practice in the state regarding what are sometimes referred to as 'late-term' abortions. That is permitting abortions later in pregnancy when it
is necessary to protect a woman's life OR health, as determined by a licensed physician. Do you support or oppose making this provision part of New York law?

Q22. Supporters of the legislation say that these two abortion provisions do not expand or extend abortion rights beyond what is allowed in New York right now, but only protect existing rights for New Yorkers in case federal
court rulings change. Opponents disagree and say these provisions would ease restrictions in state law on late-term abortions and run the serious risk of broadly expanding abortion access at all stages of pregnancy. Do you
agree more with supporters that the bill protects existing rights or with opponents that the bill expands abortion rights?

Q27. On another subject, the Governor recently unveiled a proposal he calls Tax-Free New York. He says by offering companies tax free status - including no income tax for employees, no sales, property or business taxes - it will
entice companies to bring their ventures to upstate New York and locate on State University or SUNY campuses and partner with higher education institutions. How much have you heard or read about the Governor's Tax-Free
New York proposal?
