Legislature debates bail reform in Cayuga County

While state leaders and regional legislators are looking at the possibility of revisiting bail reform, and other public safety measures that were passed in 2019 – the Cayuga County Legislature is doing the same.

The Judicial and Public Safety Committee passed two staffing resolutions from the Cayuga County District Attorney’s Office Wednesday evening, according to The Citizen.

There was some debate about whether those measures met the criteria to be passed. One change included in a resolution was a new, full-time confidential secretary position.

District Attorney Jon Budelmann requested that position to help with the increased workload created by the bail reform measure.

Opponents of those reforms passed last year said that increased cost, which was not being covered by Albany, and instead passed down to local taxpayers – was an issue.
