Anthony Annucci’s Ten-Year Temp Job
Andrew Cuomo named Anthony Annucci acting commissioner of New York prisons back in 2013. Now, someone his agency incarcerates is trying to take him out.
“The 10-year duration of the de facto appointment raises the question of how long a constitutional failure may continue.”
Despite its duration, Annucci’s role is, technically, temporary.
“It really makes you question what is the point of the Senate confirming nominees.”
The governor’s team coordinated meetings between her failed chief judge nominee and Senate Republicans in the days before a key committee vote, emails show.
Formerly incarcerated "peers" offer drug counseling to people in county jails — when they can get in.
A new bill would subject the state prison system to independent oversight for sexual assault complaints. The Senate has two weeks to bring it to a floor vote.
Biofuels, hydrogen, carbon capture, and nuclear: These are some of the technologies that will be on the table as New York weighs how to clean up its grid over the next 17 years.
While the governor awaits guidance from the federal government, thousands of undocumented New Yorkers can’t afford to go to the doctor.
Annucci has been characterized as an institutionalist loyal to the prison system above all else — even, at times, the law.
