Amedore also co-sponsored 17 bills that passed the Assembly, including legislation that imposed tougher penalties on those who commit crimes against seniors and a junior hunting mentorship program.
The Assemblyman cited several of his top policy issues including the exploration of alternative energy sources, putting an end to Thruway toll hikes and the imposition of a real property tax cap, a measure that ultimately failed to pass the Assembly this session.
Amedore, who made his announcement one day after Gov. David Patterson called the Legislature back for an emergency economic session in August, said he looked forward to his continued work this summer.
"I'll roll my sleeves up and work hard to serve the people," he said.
The 105th Assembly District includes all of Montgomery County and parts of Schenectady County.""
