(ALBANY, NY) — New York State Senator Kevin Thomas and fellow elected officials are working to pass new legislation to promote the sport of cricket in New York State. Senator Kevin Thomas of Nassau County and Assemblywoman Nily Rozic of Queens are sponsoring new legislation (S7764-A/A9823-A) to promote and expand cricket in the state of New York to the jurisdiction of the state athletic commission.
Senator Kevin Thomas said, “As the first Indian-American Senator, I am a voice for the thriving South Asian Community we have here on Long Island and in New York State, and I recognize just how important the sport of cricket is to this community. As the second-most popular sport in the world, cricket brings with it a massive audience and economic development opportunities. We recently had two cricket pitches open in Nassau County’s largest and most popular park. This is an opportune time to help promote the sport and officially recognize its important place in New York.”
The bill has garnered support from local cricket leagues and community associations across the state, and is currently on the Debate List to be reviewed in the Assembly.
