Public Forum on Heroin and Opioid Addiction

I hosted a public forum on heroin and opioid addiction with my colleagues in the State Legislature Senator Phil Boyle and Assemblyman Mark Johns. We heard compelling testimony from drug addiction and prevention experts, law enforcement professionals and families who have been touched by addiction. We are committed to ending this growing problem that has taken countless lives across New York State. My sincere thanks to everyone who shared their stories and to those who attended today.

Governor Cuomo Signs Anti-Heroin Legislation

I was pleased to join Governor Cuomo, Lt. Governor Duffy and my colleagues from the State Legislature today as the Governor signed legislation to combat growing heroin and opioid epidemic. As a member of the Joint Senate Task Force on Heroin and Opioid Addiction, I heard firsthand of the horrors these drugs can have on users and their families. This package of legislation is a step in the right direction to putting an end to this statewide problem.
