STATEMENT BY SENATE REPUBLICAN LEADER DEAN SKELOS

By taking credit for staying alive in Race to the Top Two, Senate Democrats – aka ‘the Enemies of Reform,’ are hoping taxpayers will forget how their failure to support important education reforms cost us $830 million in Round One.

 

Joining 18 other states as finalists for more federal aid is good news, but it won’t overshadow the facts that taxes and spending will be going up even more, school property tax bills are being prepared without a state budget in place, and the budget will soon be the latest in history.

I was honored to present Boy Scout Troop 315 with a New York State flag at their troop meeting Saturday, July 17th.  The troop traveled with the flag to the 2010 National Scout Jamboree in Virginia on July 25th.  The National Jamboree attracts thousands of boy scouts from across the country every four years.  This year's theme is "Celebrate 100 Years of Scouting" to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Boy Scouts of America.

Troop 315 purchased the mandated Boy Scouts of America flag for their trip and asked for a donation of a New York State flag.  I was pleased to help by providing the toop with the state flag.  I wish the best of luck to troop 315 on their trip to Fort A.P Hill, Virginia.

Senator Reverend Ruben Diaz asks: Where are the Voices of Reform and Accountability Now?

Senator Reverend Ruben Diaz (D-Bronx) released the following statement regarding the upcoming investigation of New York Congressman Charles Rangel.

"We know from published reports that a House Committee offered a deal but Congressman Rangel refused to admit any wrongdoing. The only news coverage so far has been about Rangel saying more or less: "Bring it on, I am ready" - which is his right.
