Join the Equal Pay for Women Campaign

Millions of women across New York State are on the verge of winning an historic victory at the State Capitol, but we need YOUR help!

The State Senate recently approved approved a landmark new "Women's Equality Package," which includes a key reform to ensure that women receive equal pay for equal work.

I was proud to vote for this package in the Senate, but our job isn't done yet. That's why I'm launching a new petition drive designed to encourage the State Assembly to take final action on these bills without delay.

Share Your Ideas for Mandate Relief and Medicaid Reform

Making New York a more affordable place to live and work is key to economic recovery that in turn will bring hope, opportunity and prosperity.

That is why the state Senate worked closely with Gov. Cuomo in 2011 to successfully pass the property tax cap so that destructive double digit property tax increases are stopped.

And the best way to accomplish tax relief is by eliminating wasteful and unnecessary government spending.
