Congresswoman-elect Nicole Malliotakis said, “Last night’s Supreme Court decision is a victory for religious institutions, their congregations and all freedom-loving Americans. Governor Cuomo’s arbitrary restrictions not only infringed on our First Amendment rights but did not take into account building capacity or safety protocols put in place. It is fitting that the Court’s decision was made on the eve of Thanksgiving, a holiday founded by Pilgrims who settled in North America in search of religious freedom. New Yorkers and all Americans have one more thing to be thankful for today.”
