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.

Senator Ted O'Brien's statement on the Bank of America settlement

ROCHESTER, N.Y. – Senator Ted O’Brien released the following statement on the Bank of America settlement that will bring $300 million to New York State:

“The $300 million New York will receive from the Bank of America settlement should go towards upstate property tax relief by reducing the cost burden on local school districts which have been devastated by the Gap Elimination Adjustment. We cannot afford to continue balancing school district budgets on the backs of local property tax payers, and must take action immediately to give hardworking families and small businesses the property tax relief they need.”

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.
