Lauren's Law Passes Transportation Commitee

Senator Carlucci, Assemb. Ortiz and IDC Join 10-year-old Heart Transplant Survivor to Push for Life-Saving Legislation

'Lauren's Law' to Increase Organ Donation Passed Important Committee Vote

ALBANY, N.Y. – Senator David Carlucci and Assemblyman Felix Ortiz, (D-Brooklyn) joined 10-year-old heart transplant survivor Lauren Shields and her family in a push for life saving legislation.

The measure, “Lauren's Law,” would prohibit a driver's license application from being processed unless the organ donation section is filled out. Applicants would have to check a box stating “yes,” or “not at this time.” There currently is an organ donation section on the application, but it is not required to be filled out.

Senator Carlucci: Saving Time, Resources and Money Through E-Recording

(Albany, NY) Today, Senator David Carlucci (D-Rockland/Orange) voted to pass a bill that responds to the ongoing challenge local governments face of delivering more services with fewer resources. This bill permits, but does not mandate, the use of electronic recording and filing to support activities related to the recording of instruments affecting real property.

“County clerks are continually seeking ways to improve efficiency, enhance services, and save taxpayer dollars,” Senator Carlucci said.  “Owners of real property, real estate professionals and local government taxpayers will benefit from the more accurate and efficient land records system that this bill would facilitate.”

We need a specific plan in the event of an earthquake at Indian Point

In light of the horrific recent earthquake and tsunami that caused the Fukushima nuclear power plant in Japan to have explosions and cooling failures, I have called on Indian Point to make all safety reports available to the public as well as their earthquake contingency plan.

According to the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Indian Point has the highest risk of earthquake damage in the country.

Indian Point provides 12 percent of all power generated statewide, but has long been a concern to residents in our area.  Given the recent tragedy in Japan, and the fact that Indian Point sits within two miles of two intersecting fault lines, we need to ensure that all possible safety measures are in place in the event of an emergency.
