Statement by Senator Jeffrey D. Klein, (D-Bronx/ Westchester), on DNA Databank Expansion:

“New York has the dubious distinction of having more than 10 percent of the country's cold cases, and less than 5 percent of criminal DNA profiles in the U.S. That’s why I sponsor legislation that would expand New York State’s DNA Databank.  I applaud Governor Cuomo for making DNA Databank expansion a priority this legislative session.

Creative Celebration

Dear Participant,

Thank you for your wonderful contribution to the Thanksgiving Day Creative Celebration. In our first year, we received outstanding poems, essays, and artwork that exemplify the creativity of New York State’s young people.

The submissions received are remarkable in what they represent – showing gratitude and respect for family, friends, our troops fighting overseas, and many other important subjects and activities. I am humbled and honored to see such inspiring contributions in response to what is a deceptively difficult question: “What are you thankful for?”

On behalf of the New York State Senate, I would like to offer my wholehearted congratulations to all of the participants in this year’s Thanksgiving Day Creative Celebration.
