Sanders Thanks NYC Council for $253,000 Rochdale Village NORC Funding Restoration

Late yesterday, the New York City Council adopted a $75 billion dollar city budget for fiscal year 2015. Included within the new budget is a $253,000 appropriation to fund the Rochdale Village Naturally Occurring Retirement Community (NORC).

Rochdale Village's NORC was scheduled to close next month after its application for a renewal of funding was declined by the New York City Department for the Aging (DFTA) due to projected budget constraints.

Upon learning of the NORC’s impending discontinuation, New York State Senator James Sanders Jr. (D-Rochdale) immediately convened a meeting between him, his aides and DFTA Commissioner Donna Corrado, to urge the program's funding be renewed.

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.
