SUNY Caucus Forms


The Albany Times Union is reporting that a caucus has been formed for legislators who graduated from a school in the State University of New York system.

The SUNY Legislative Alumni Caucus, representing about 51 legislators or about one-fourth of the full Legislature, will be headed by Sen. Joseph Robach, R-Greece, a SUNY Brockport grad, and Assemblyman Sam Hoyt, a Buffalo State College alum. The caucus welcomes members of both houses and both parties.

The caucus, which met for the first time Monday, isn’t exactly saying its goal is to preserve and enhance funding for SUNY, but to, “create a cohesiveness between SUNY alumni legislators and the University to reconnect them with their alma mater, and the University as a whole, to continue the dialogue that began when they were students, with the goal of providing a better understanding of role SUNY plays in public higher education through its educational offerings, research, and cultural and community interactions.”
