Recent Bills Cosponsored By NYS Senator Eric Adams

S3510 by Sen. Maziarz -  Passed Assembly on 6/15/11 and Passed Senate on June 20, 2011 This legislation prohibits health insurers from requiring that the insured purchases prescribed drugs from a mail order pharmacy.  Many consumers, especially senior citizens, rely on their local pharmacy for the service that is provided with respect to the monitoring of their prescription drug regimen. A mandate of purchase by mail order denies consumers this important support service.  This legislation is important because it provides freedom of choice, and also supports the small local pharmacist and provides for competitive pricing.

NYS Senator Eric Adams Responds To The Mauling Death Of A Four-Year Old Brooklyn Child

NYS Senator Eric Adams Unites With Housing Advocates And Form A Human Chain Around A Rent Regulated Building

Statement From NYS Senator Eric Adams On The Death Of Osama Bin Laden

Senator Adams’ statement:

“The death of Osama Bin Laden is bittersweet. It brings a certain level of closure for the many lives lost and the families that continue to hold onto their memory. The efforts, bravery and sacrifice of our soldiers were not in vain. However, it is important that we remain vigilant toward future threats. Homeland security strategies are a crucial part of our safety and should be our number one priority. Terrorism is still very much alive and we should do all that we can to protect ourselves.  The father of hate is dead, but the children that his hate bred are still alive.”
