Adios, “chica chica” cards.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed a bill into law last week banning the distribution of cards depicting naked or scantily clad women used to promote prostitution. The bill was sponsored by state Sen. Jose Peralta (D-East Elmhurst) and state Assemblyman Francisco Moya (D-Jackson Heights) in response to the proliferation of such cards along Roosevelt Avenue. “This is an important first step in what needs to become an all-out offensive against the prostitution problem and other quality-of-life issues that have long plagued Roosevelt Avenue,” Peralta said in a statement.

Recent Bills Cosponsored By NYS Senator Eric Adams

S3510 by Sen. Maziarz -  Passed Assembly on 6/15/11 and Passed Senate on June 20, 2011 This legislation prohibits health insurers from requiring that the insured purchases prescribed drugs from a mail order pharmacy.  Many consumers, especially senior citizens, rely on their local pharmacy for the service that is provided with respect to the monitoring of their prescription drug regimen. A mandate of purchase by mail order denies consumers this important support service.  This legislation is important because it provides freedom of choice, and also supports the small local pharmacist and provides for competitive pricing.
