On March 26th the New York State Rifle & Pistol Association (NYSRPA) announced that New York State Police had decided not to enforce "a capricious, ill-conceived and unconstitutional portion of the NY SAFE act"--the seven round magazine limit.

According to Guns.com, the decision follows a federal judge's ruling in December which ruled the seven-round magazine limitation was "'tenuous, straitened, and unsupported,' and therefore unconstitutional."
This puts New York State Police in line with the "sensible path taken by the New York Sheriffs' Association and many local law enforcement agencies in not enforcing" the magazine capacity limit.
