This January's session of Sen. Krueger's Roundtable for Boomers and Seniors focused on managing clutter and hoarding, and a key handout was our office's new comprehensive best-practices guide! You can download it here, or read on to view it here on our web site.
This guide provided by Representative Jerrold Nadler's office details federal services and benefits available to New Yorkers affected by Hurricane Sandy. Assistance can include grants for temporary housing and home repairs, low-cost loans to cover uninsured property losses, unemployment payments up to 26 weeks for workers who temporarily lost jobs because of the disaster, and other programs to help individuals and business owners recover from the effects of the disaster. A full list of assistance programs is available in the document, which can be downloaded from this page.
In his State of the State address in January, Governor Cuomo proposed a comprehensive Women’s Equality Act, bringing together a number of key measures that have failed to move in Albany in the past, including protecting a women's freedom of choice, achieving pay equity, stopping sexual harassment, and ending family status, source-of-income, and pregnancy discrimination.
This is a comprehensive and compelling agenda, but it needs your support. Anti-choice advocates have mobilized in opposition to the reproductive health provisions of the governor’s proposal, and many other aspects of the proposal have long been obstructed by the business lobby.
Please sign Sen. Krueger's petition supporting the Women's Equality Act agenda.Your support is vital to passing this long-overdue legislation and advancing the cause of equality in New York State.
