Queens Chronicle: Diplomacy officially dead in ICCC dispute

In 2013, the state Inspector General’s Office used terms such as “disingenuous” when describing the process by which the Indian Cultural and Community Center obtained state land at the Creedmoor Psychiatric Hospital campus.

On Tuesday, opponents of the proposed four-story apartment complex used terms including “fraudulent” and “lie” in discussing the ICCC’s acquisition of the property and its ongoing hearings before the city’s Board of Standards and Appeals.

The harshest words yet for the project came at a press conference at the spot where 82nd Street in Bellerose ends at an emergency access gate to the Creedmoor property, a gathering that included more than a dozen civic leaders and neighborhood residents.

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.
