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.
