Secrets of the Legislature
We are taught that our legislators in Albany go into session, draft bills, vote on them bill and laws are thus made. Not quite! Jerry Kremer a 13-term assemblyman and Chair of Ways & Means describes how business is really done in the halls of Albany. Now a top lobbyist and noted attorney, Kremer’s newest book “Winning Albany” details the nitty-gritty of lawmaking and the motivations behind political back-stabbing. It’s certainly authoritative – Jerry knows where the bodies are buried.
