Create the empire state cricket task force - Senate Bill S3807A

0 have signed. Let’s get to 1,000!

This Petition is created to in support of the Senate Bill S3807A “Creates the empire state cricket task force”. On Monday 25th November Governor vetoed the bill , saying a study of how to expand cricket would come with financial ramifications and should be considered as part of state budget talks next year.
We request Governor to relook into the bill and give an opportunity to form the task force. The eight-member task force would not be paid and would be appointed by the governor and legislative leaders. The scope of the study would be to examine the various formats of cricket, which is a bat-and-ball game, and also study the location of leagues and programs across New York. From there, the task force would look at ways to expand the game that dates back centuries and look for ways cricket tournaments could boost the state's economy.

America has one of the richest cricketing histories of any countries in the world, dating back over 300 years. First official international cricket match and the first official international game of any sport was played on 1844 between United States of America versus the British Empire's Canadian Province in New York. The match took place between 24 and 26 September 1844 at the St George's Cricket Club's ground at what is now 30th Street and Broadway (then Bloomingdales) in Manhattan. On the first day, there were from 5,000 to 20,000 spectators and this is grand history or cricket in New York.
Cricket exists here because immigrants refuse to part ways with it. Its players hail from the West Indies, India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, England, New Zealand and Australia.
New York use to be Pioneer in cricket for a long time but in present days many other states have better infrastructure and development plans which is better than New York. New York cricket community must work together to use the great momentum that has started with the New Board in place.

We request all the cricket Community members to support this Petition.
