Rivera’s day care inspection bill passes Senate, moves to Assembly

Legislation that would require additional inspection for home day care centers passed in the state Senate this week, nearly nine months after a baby was killed from fentanyl exposure in a Bronx day care center. 

State Sen. Gustavo Rivera — who represents the Bronx’s 33rd Senatorial District where the fatal overdose occurred — announced that his daycare inspection bill had passed unanimously 60-0 in the Senate on June 4 and will next move through the state Assembly before it can make its way to Gov. Kathy Hochul’s desk.
