Preserve, Promote and Grow Local Farms

(Congers, NY) Senator David Carlucci (D-Rockland/Orange) announced today important legislation that will preserve, promote and grow New York’s local farms. The Senator was joined by farmers, members of the agriculture community and renowned Chef Peter Kelly at the Dr. Davies Farm in Congers.

“Preserving New York’s farmland and promoting our fine agricultural products is a top priority,” Senator Carlucci said. “While New York farmers have risen to meet the many challenges they face in a globalized agricultural economy, they can still use the help that New York State can provide. The package of bills I have introduced will preserve farmland, promote the importance of locally grown produce and grow local farms throughout the State.”

Lauren's Law Passes the State Senate

(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.
