SENATE PASSES 2012-13 BUDGET RESOLUTION

Gallivan: “Senate Plan Cuts Taxes, Reforms Medicaid, Protects Seniors and Schools.”

The New York State Senate voted to approve its 2012-13 Senate Budget resolution, continuing its focus on state spending, job creation, and structural reform to government.

The Senate budget, at just under $132.5 billion, keeps the total state spending increase below two percent, and spends less than the Executive Budget. The budget closes a $2 billion budget deficit and builds on last year’s successes in putting the state’s fiscal house in order.

Introducing Legislation Banning the Use of Performance Enhancing Drugs in New York’s Horseracing Industry

ALBANY, September 13, 2011 – As the Belmont Race Course opens its gates for its Fall season, Senator Thomas K. Duane today announced that he will introduce legislation banning the use of performance enhancing drugs, including the widely overused diuretic Lasix (Furosemide), on any horse participating in a New York State sanctioned horserace. The bill also carries stiff fines -- including a permanent ban on those who violate the law after a third violation.  Senator Duane said, "Until this legislation becomes law, I urge everyone to refrain from wagering on any horse that is being dosed with Lasix – or worse. No one in the horseracing industry should be monetarily rewarded for racing a horse which may be too sick to run without such drugs."
