We can thank Cuomo for not being able to open up today. From

I spoke with many concerned businessman over the past three weeks. They have asked me to help organize a rally, maybe Tuesday or Wednesday at the Ellicott Square lobby at noon to bring hundreds of small business owners and have a couple of speakers outline their thoughts on the matter and see if there is a willingness to declare and then open for business on a day certain in disregard of the of Cuomo’s illegal and unconstitutional lockdown and/or bring a lawsuit.
An attorney has researched the question of the legality of the lockdown. Cuomo’s emergency directive can only be made once for 30 days to maintain the status quo on an urgent issue while allowing time to be considered by the legislature. The law says that no “suspension or directive shall be made for a period in excess of 20 days, provided , however, that upon reconsideration of all relevant facts and circumstances, the governor may “extend the suspension” for additional periods to exceed thirty days each.’ He can extend suspensions but not new directives, which is what the shutdown is and its over 50 days old.
