Good Morning!

• New York State Senator Anthony Palumbo announced Tuesday that the State Legislature has passed a bill to reinstate state recognition and acknowledgement of the Montaukett Indian Nation. The bill, which was first introduced a decade ago, awaits the governor’s signature.

“The Montaukett recognition legislation has now overwhelmingly passed in both houses of the State Legislature the past two years, and with strong bipartisan support. I urge the Governor to sign this legislation into law and reinstate the Nation’s status that they should have never lost. The Montauketts once ruled from the end of Long Island to Hempstead and enjoyed federal recognition for years prior to the Pharoah case.  Now is the time to correct this injustice and provide the Montaukett Indian Nation with the status they deserve under law.” said Senator Anthony Palumbo.

• Riverhead Town Supervisor again extended her May 16 emergency executive order on Wednesday, banning the housing of migrants in town. This is the third time she’s extended the order “for any period of time not inconsistent with the law.”
