With an unprecedented second blizzard warning in 2014, Kennedy calls Emergency Services Commissioner to monitor state response to storm.
BUFFALO, N.Y. – Senator Tim Kennedy, D-Buffalo, called New York State Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Services Commissioner Jerome Hauer this morning to ensure the state's preparedness to support storm response in Western New York. Western New York is facing an unprecedented second blizzard warning in 2014, and Kennedy is closely monitoring the state's response.
New bills proposed by Kennedy and Ryan aim to hold slumlords accountable for their blighted properties and will add funding to the city’s weatherization and home-repair programs to help responsible homeowners.
