I write today in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, one of the most devastating natural disasters that New York City has ever faced. I wish to extend my deepest sympathy to those who lost loved ones during the storm. I would also like to publicly thank the brave men and women of the New York City Police and Fire Departments as well as first responders throughout the area for their valiant efforts during the hurricane. I have no doubt that without their heroism and dedication our losses would have been much higher.
“Today’s decision is great news for working class New Yorkers. I applaud the Supreme Court for their decision. Our conference was proud to stand with Governor Cuomo in supporting theestablishment of a health exchange here in New York in accordance with the federal law.Unfortunately, the Senate Republicans held the health and well-being of New Yorkers hostage byrefusing to pass this exchange legislatively and instead forced the Governor to use his executive prerogative. Thankfully the Senate Republicans’ radical Tea Party agenda has been thwarted. Iwould hope now we can move forward in ensuring New Yorkers are no longer denied access tothe quality and affordable health care they deserve.”
“With today’s announcement about an agreement on comprehensive legislation to strengthen New York’s domestic violence laws, our state has taken a positive step in combating this societal epidemic. The Senate Democratic Conference recently held a public forum and has sponsored multiple bills intended to combat domestic violence and provide dignity and greater protection to the victims of this terrible crime. I commend the Governor for his leadership on this important issue and look forward to working with his administration to ensure that all New Yorkers are protected.”
“I want to congratulate my friend and colleague Tom Duane upon his announced retirement. It has been a profound honor to serve with Tom Duane over the past 14 years, because he has never backed down from a fight, and his efforts have made New York a better place.
