I don't wish to discuss the politics of the matter, but will the recent NY law speed up processing times for NEXUS for residents from other states?

There were some applications from June that received conditional approval recently. It was noted on this forum before that applications are not getting approved in the order they were received but rather you need to get lucky. I feel that with our luck we will be waiting much longer.

I applied in Aug 2019 and am STILL pending review. I thought I could use it for my US trips in Dec 2019 and in a couple of days, guess not. Don't think I'm planning a trip to the US for the rest of the year so essentially this application was a waste of time and money.

Applied July 16. Still pending review. I have traveled to the US four times since I applied which I thought I did "early" to cover those four fall/winter trips. Unbelievably frustrating, especially knowing that I have no power to push, complain, demand a refund for poor service, etc.

Off to a hunt for an early interview date.
update:
Applied July 7, 2019 (somehow with current wait times I feel application year is worth mentioning)
Conditional on January 30, 2020
Interviewed and approved on February 9, 2020
Card received Today, February 12 - unbelievably fast considering overall wait times.

Phew. I thought I would make a Guinness record of the longest wait time for conditional approval. Guess not.

In the US.
Applied September 9, 2019.
Still waiting on conditional approval.

When I spoke to someone at the Blaine, WA office about a month ago, they estimated an 8-month wait time. Currently at 158 days, or just over 5 months.

I'll be surprised if I'm approved before May 2020.

My wife's application from the beginning of July got conditional approval today. Looks like they're finally starting to get through the July applications.
