By the time you finish reading this sentence, one child will have been abused somewhere in America. In the next 24 hours, 4 children will die from child abuse. Of those four children who die, 70% of those deaths will be children under the age of 4.

For these reasons, and many more, I want to invite you to recognize April as Child Abuse Prevention Month.

Senator Bonacic (R/C/I- Mt. Hope) is pleased to announce that the New York State 2014 – 2015 budget agreement includes $40 million in funding to help fix the many potholes that are left after a rough winter throughout New York.

The well-being of motorists and pedestrians across New York State depends on keeping our roads safe,” said Senator Bonacic.
