NYCLA published a Board Report on April 27th, 2022, calling for the establishment of a “blue ribbon” task force to study the current process, suggesting that it include respected leaders from bar associations around the state as well as academics and stakeholders, and that it study, investigate and make appropriate recommendations which would provide a clear, reliable, and transparent procedure and process for Lieutenant Gubernatorial succession. In January 2023, the New York State Bar Association released a report and recommendations resulting from just such a study. That report and its recommendations will be part of the focus of the panel’s discussion.
