Cuomo’s list of proposals for 2019 includes eliminating the statute of limitations for rape claims and increasing protections against sexual harassment in the workplace. Some related initiatives have been passed by the Democratic-controlled Legislature and signed into law by the governor.

Moore is a leader of the Time’s Up movement fighting sexual harassment and promoting equality in the workplace. She won the 2015 Oscar for best actress for her performance in “Still Alice.” NVG
