Governor Cuomo Announces Construction on I-490 Bridges in Monroe County to Begin in April

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced that construction will begin next month on a project to replace four bridge decks on Interstate 490 in Monroe County. The work is part of a $13.8 million contract funded through the NY Works program. The project meets the goals of Governor Cuomo’s Drivers First initiative to ensure that construction causes the least impact to motorists.

 

The bridges carry eastbound and westbound I-490 over Chili Center Coldwater Road (Route 386) in Chili and eastbound and westbound I-490 over Route 204 (Airport Expressway) in Gates.

Senator Robach Supports Legislation To Toughen Penalties for Sex Crimes

The New York State Senate today passed a package of bills cracking down on rapists and sex offenders by creating new crimes and increasing penalties.

 

Legislation (S.1459) sponsored by Senate Republican Leader Dean Skelos (R, Rockville Centre) ensures significantly longer prison sentences for serial rapists. Under current law, it is possible for a judge to issue concurrent sentences for multiple counts arising from separate and distinct acts of rape. The legislation would require consecutive prison sentences for each separate count of first-degree rape when an individual is convicted of multiple counts, keeping dangerous felons off the streets for as long as possible.
