Would Allow Municipalities and Homeowner Associations to Enforce Provisions of the Bill to Protect the Public and Property Values.Savino Urges Assembly to Pass House Version ALBANY-- Senator Diane J. Savino (D-Brooklyn/Staten Island) said a foreclosed home offers its owner no excuse to let it go into disrepair, and has the responsibility of maintaining a vacant home to prevent any chance of fire, criminal activity or depressed property value.
(Albany, NY)- Today, Senate Majority Leader Malcolm A. Smith, joined by a bi-partisan coalition of women Senators, celebrated the achievements, contributions and struggles of women with a Resolution to commemorate the month of March as Women’s History Month. The Resolution commemorates women who have made significant contributions to society and recognizes women trailblazers in the political history of New York and our country, including 10 sitting women Senators here in New York.
As we celebrate Women’s History Month, and all of the triumphs the years past has brought, we must not forget the pressing issues women continue to face. March is Women’s History Month.
Public celebration of women's history in this country began in 1978 as "Women's History Week." In 1981, Congress declared Women’s History Week a national holiday. Overwhelming support and participation led to the 1987 declaration to extend the celebration to include the entire month of March.
