RELEASE: 24 Hours until Tip-Off, Senator Panepinto Thrilled About his Alma Mater

As the NCAA Tournament Commences, Panepinto Set to Honor UB Team on the Senate Floor

BUFFALO, N.Y. – As the Captain of the 1987 UB Football Team, the school's athletic program is something Senator Marc Panepinto holds very close to his heart. He will be displaying his school pride next week when he introduces a resolution on the Senate Floor honoring the UB Bulls on their advancement into the NCCA National Tournament. Today, he made the following comments:

“I could not be prouder of my alma mater and their first entry ever into the NCAA Tournament. The outstanding young men on the UB Bulls team have been so much fun to watch and their gifted coach, Bobby Hurley, deserves a lot of credit for ushering these talents together and building one heck of a program. I look forward to watching them defeat West Virginia and honoring this impressive team next week on the Senate Floor.”

BORELLI, GOLDEN CALL ON MAYOR DE BLASIO TO INCREASE MTA CAPITAL PLAN BUDGET CONTRIBUTIONS TO MEET INFLATION

New York- Assemblyman Joe Borelli (South Shore – R,C,I) and State Senator Marty Golden (Brooklyn – R,C,I) are calling on Mayor de Blasio to adjust for inflation the City’s contributions to the MTA Capital Plan Budget. The current annual contribution from New York City is only about $100 million and, as Borelli and Golden have noted, is lower than it was in 1982.

Mayor de Blasio was in Albany earlier this month and had indicated that the city would like to see the state make larger contributions to the capital plan budget to help close a multi-billion dollar funding gap. However, as Assemblyman Borelli and Senator Golden have pointed out, New York State has contributed over $250 million each year for the last 3 years, more than double the City’s contribution.
