Health Care Proxy & Living Will Information

Living Wills and the appointment of a person who can function as your health care proxy are important decisions we all should make related to how we wish to be treated as our life ends. These decisions are not just considerations for the frail and elderly, but choices to be made when we are alert and willing to evaluate our views on end- of- life care. Discussions with close family and friends is a good way to have opinions known, but will have greater relevance if they are also supported by a living will and a health care proxy.

Statement From Senate Majority Conference Leader John L. Sampson On The Commencement Of Hannukah

On behalf of my family and my colleagues in the Senate Majority Conference, I want to wish our Jewish friends a Happy Hanukkah.  As you reflect over the next eight days, may you remember the triumphs of the past that led to the rededication of the Holy Temple. With each candle lit on the Hanukiah, may you recognize that the miracles of yesterday will carry you through the future. New York’s Jewish community continues to make great contributions to the heart and soul of the Empire State. Your light shines like the shamash, brightening the path for all those you touch.
