Albany, NY— State Senator Jeff Klein (D-Bronx/Westchester) and Assemblywoman Helene Weinstein (D-Brooklyn) called on their colleagues today to pass the Abandoned Property Neighborhood Relief Act (S.4781/A.6932), which would require bank and mortgage companies to prevent residential properties in foreclosure from falling into disrepair — and would carry penalties for companies that neglect these homes.

The renewed call from Senator Klein and Assemblywoman Weinstein, who sponsor the legislation, comes on the heels of an announcement today by Governor Andrew Cuomo that 11 bank, mortgage and credit unions will voluntarily comply to maintain “zombie properties.”

Chanukah is the celebration of Miracles!

"Chanukah is the celebration of miracles, a reminder that all things are possible," Senator Parker said.  "As you celebrate the spirit of Chanukah with friends and family, I wish you health, happiness and good fortune." The holiday celebrates a legendary victory of the Maccabees, a band of Jews, over a Greek army that occupied the Holy Land.  After the battle, the victorious Maccabees found only a one day supply of oil in the temple to light the lamps.  But the oil burned miraculously for eight days, the story says.

Legislative Notebook: State Initiatives of Interest to Veterans

Here is a partial listing of bills I have supported this session to aid New York’s former servicemen and servicewomen. These initiatives will now go to Governor Cuomo for final action.

-- Legislation I co-sponsored was passed by both houses (S.7839, first introduced as S.4714)) to extend the Military Service Credit Law of 2000 to all veterans who have served in the military. Right now, public employees who served in the armed forces may purchase up to three years of pension credit only if their military service occurred during specified conflicts. This measure will expand this opportunity to public employee veterans who also served their country in peacetime.
