It’s currently scheduled for Tuesday, Sept. 11.

Lawmakers and supporters said that they wanted to move the date in honor of 9/11, as well as in observation of the Jewish holiday of Rosh Hashanah.

WHEC says the bill — passed by both the state Senate and Assembly — now goes to Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
