Earlier this year, Governor Andrew Cuomo attempted to enact far-reaching educational reforms as part of the 2015-2016 New York State budget.
My Senate colleagues and I, very early on in this year's budget adoption process, rejected the broad scope of the original Cuomo education reform plan and, in particular, the plan's over-reliance on testing.
The New York State Senate recently passed legislation (S1782), co-sponsored by Senator Joe Robach, that would ensure timely payment of state income tax refunds. The bill requires the state Department of Taxation and Finance to pay tax refunds within 30 days of receiving a taxpayer’s return, unless there is a discrepancy in the return.
As the April 15 deadline for filing tax returns within New York State approaches, it is important that all New Yorkers who overpaid their state taxes receive their refunds in a reasonable amount of time. However, there have been many instances of taxpayers having to wait three months or more before they received their refunds from the state.

I have heard from hundreds of senior citizens and families about the importance of the Elderly Pharmaceutical Insurance Coverage Program (EPIC), and the impact it has on their daily lives.
