Approximately 145,000 New Yorkers traded in their energy-hogging refrigerators, dishwashers, clothing washers and freezers for more efficient models during the first go-around in February -- but because 25,000 never claimed their rebate, $4.8 million is back up for grabs.

From the Desk of NYS Senator Eric Adams - Conference Call Information

Dear Constituents:

The death of 23-year-old cyclist Jasmine Herron, killed when a motorist opened a car door into traffic, knocking Jasmine into the path of a city bus, was tragic. This was a dreadful occurrence, and I once again extend my deepest sympathies to the family.

I want to mobilize our city to understand the importance of sharing streets safely with all the various modes of transportation. Bicycle travel in particular has become a significant means of travel in our State; in New York City, some estimates put the number of daily trips at a quarter of a million.

Statement Of Senate Majority Conference Leader John L. Sampson On The Passage Of The 9/11 Health And Compensation Act

Within minutes  of the most horrific terrorist attack our nation has ever seen, brave first responders courageously sacrificed their own health and safety to come to the rescue of those in need. Yesterday, by passing the 9/11 Health and Compensation Act, the House of Representatives honored our commitment to protect those who put themselves in harm’s way to help others. The debt that we owe these selfless individuals can never fully be repaid. Ensuring their health and well-being by providing access to vital medical care is the only action worthy of the valor and heroism they displayed in the face of grave danger.
