Support Senator Nozzolio's plan to eliminate the GEA

Yes! I support Senator Nozzolio's plan to use the over $3 billion dollars from the French Bank BNP Paribas settlement with New York State, to eliminate the GEA for good! The GEA is an unfair school aid cut, enacted in 2010 by the New York City legislators who, at the time, controlled the Senate, the Assembly and the Governor's office. From its inception, the GEA has cost school districts all across the State, billions of dollars in badly needed state aid.

SENATOR NOZZOLIO AND THE JOINT SENATE TASK FORCE ON HEROIN AND OPIOID ADDICTION RELEASES REPORT AND LEGISLATIVE RECOMMENDATIONS TO COMBAT THE HEROIN AND OPIOID EPIDEMIC

Citing the need to stop the dramatic increase in the use of heroin and opioid-based illegal drugs, New York State Senator Mike Nozzolio joined today with his colleagues on the New York State Senate Joint Task Force on Heroin and Opioid Addiction to release a report and legislative recommendations to combat the growing heroin and opioid epidemic.

 

“The Task Force’s roundtable discussion in Auburn clearly demonstrates that the heroin crisis has become an epidemic that is destroying countless lives and families across our State and Nation. No longer is heroin addiction only found in the inner big cities, but is all too prevalent in our suburbs, small cities and rural areas,” said Senator Nozzolio. “The focus of the Task Force is on providing additional resources for the prevention of drug abuse and the treatment of those addicted, while giving law enforcement officials the tools they need to prosecute criminals who are spreading heroin in our local communities.”
