The New York State Catholic Conference (NYSCC) has appointed Kristen Curran to serve as its new director of government relations — a crucial post for the Albany-based conference, which represents the bishops of New York State in public policy matters.
The New York State Catholic Conference, which represents the bishops of New York in public policy matters, sent a letter to the state’s congressional delegation urging them “to reject taxpayer funding of abortion, and to oppose appropriations bills that do not include the long-standing, bipartisan Hyde Amendment and related pro-life policies.”
The New York State Catholic Conference has appointed Dennis Poust as its Executive Director.
