Senator Krueger's Community Bulletin: August 2011

Message from Liz . . .

Once again our leaders in Washington are fighting over cuts to the deficit, while our economy teeters on the brink of a "double dip" recession. At the federal, state, and local levels, the focus is on cutting programs rather than increasing revenues. But what many of these leaders have chosen to ignore is the fact that this strategy will have radical macro and micro economic and political consequences for decades to come.

Community Bulletin -- December 2010

Message from Liz . . .

Every year, starting around Thanksgiving going through New Year’s Day, many of us re-visit the age old questions of thinking about how things have gone during the last year. Have we accomplished our personal goals? Where are we compared to a year ago? What are we thankful for? What will be our resolutions for the New Year? And what is our shared responsibility for improving our community and the lives of others?

Community Bulletin - January 2011

Message from Liz . . .

A Note About Arizona: We were all shocked and saddened by the violent rampage targeted against a Congresswoman, her staff and other bystanders earlier this month. Much that is right and wrong has already been written about who, beyond the deranged gunman, bears any level of responsibility for this tragedy. The one thing that really weighs on my mind is: why does it remain so easy for the wrong people to get guns and munitions in this country? What if the same man in the same situation only had the use of his fists?

Health Care Proxy & Living Will Information

Living Wills and the appointment of a person who can function as your health care proxy are important decisions we all should make related to how we wish to be treated as our life ends. These decisions are not just considerations for the frail and elderly, but choices to be made when we are alert and willing to evaluate our views on end- of- life care. Discussions with close family and friends is a good way to have opinions known, but will have greater relevance if they are also supported by a living will and a health care proxy.

Healthcare Update Newsletter: Effects of Healthcare Reform Legislation

I know how confusing healthcare insurance issues can be, and in times like these, with new Federal legislation, these issues can get even more complicated. My office has received a great many calls from constituents seeking assistance in navigating issues of access to healthcare and in dealing with Medicare, Medicaid, and private insurance. As New York State moves toward implementing Federal healthcare reform, there are many new questions about what changes to expect. This newsletter is an effort to address some of these questions.

Please see attached newsletter.

September 2010 Community Bulletin

Message from Liz . . .

Already post-Labor Day–wow!

In reviewing what summer 2010 will be remembered for, I am struck by the BP oil spill disaster in the Gulf, the hottest summer on record in New York City and a disturbing upsurge in Islamophobia throughout the US, including right here in New York City.

Early September this year brings the Jewish New Year (L’SHANA TOVA 5771 to those of you who are celebrating) and so too the end of Ramadan for the Muslim community, which is celebrated with a big feast, that happens to fall on September 11th this year. Jewish and Muslim holidays move dates every year due to solar changes.

Select Committee Releases Report on NYS's Sales Tax

(Albany, NY) – Today, the New York State Senate Select Committee on Budget and Tax Reform released a staff report detailing how the State’s sales tax is failing to keep pace with economic and technological trends.

The sales tax, which then-Governor Nelson A. Rockefeller passed in 1965 to provided added aid to municipalities and schools, is being impacted by economic, technological and political trends. These trends — examined in the report — include:

· the shift from an industrial-based economy to a service-based economy;

· rampant growth in sales tax exemptions and credits;

· uncollected sales tax revenues because of mail order and Internet sales.

How to Make Your Home More Energy Efficient

This summer New York has experienced record-breaking heat, which has lead New Yorkers to take refuge inside, where there are cooler temperatures. But lower temperatures inside often lead to higher energy costs. To help you save both energy and money, Senator Krueger recommends you take the following steps to make your home more energy-efficient:

Use Energy Star Products

Energy-efficient products may be more expensive to purchase but over time you can save about 30% on your energy bill. Energy Star-qualified appliances use 10 to 50% less electricity than standard models. Go to http://www.energysavers.gov to get tips on how to save energy and which energy efficient products you can buy.
