(Albany, NY) The New York State Senate passed Lauren’s Law (S3885a), sponsored by Senator David Carlucci (D-Rockland/Orange) that will 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.
This change would increase organ donation in New York, which ranked last in the country for the number of new donors.
Passing Lauren’s Law today has very special meaning to heart transplant survivor Lauren Shields, the namesake of the bill as it is also her eleventh birthday.
(Albany, NY)Calling it the only sure way to get to the bottom of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority's spending practices, Senator David Carlucci (D-Rockland/Orange) today unveiled legislation he sponsored that would commence a forensic audit of the public authority.
Under the legislation, (S.4501), the audit, which would be the first true top-to-bottom review of the MTA, would be conducted by an independent outside auditing firm and be paid for by the authority.
On Friday, I had the pleasure of making gift baskets for homeless children centers with Daisy Troop 40451. My thanks go out to the girls and Troop Leaders for inviting me. What a fun way to build strong character and a sense of community involvement for these young ladies!

'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.
(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.”
