Legislator Flotteron Co-Sponsors Suffolk County’s “RISE ACT"

Rise Act

Suffolk County Legislator Steven J. Flotteron (R) co-sponsored the “RISE ACT” in the Suffolk County Legislature following a lively debate during the General Meeting on November 20.


“I had reservations about the constitutional issue of free speech and whether this particular law would be effective,” said Flotteron. “However, after listening to my colleagues and hearing the passion with which they argued their case, I was persuaded that this was the right thing to do and I decided to co-sponsor the law.”


The RISE ACT prohibits employers in Suffolk County from asking potential employees questions about their salary history. The goal is to help close the gender wage gap.


“I look forward to working with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to find new and innovative ways to solve this problem,” said Flotteron.
