Senator: NY DOT wastes taxpayer dollars

“We have a responsibility to every taxpaying New Yorker to ensure that their tax dollars are being used in the absolute most efficient way possible. When we find the kind of waste in state agency services that we are uncovering now in the Department of Transportation, it is imperative that we address this problem immediately. Every New Yorker should have the confidence that their tax dollars are serving a real purpose for the good of our state and of our local communities.

State must help its universities

The reforms are in Gov. David A. Paterson’s executive budget bill. The Senate chose to include these reforms in its budget resolution, thanks to a strong push by State Sen. William T. Stachowski, D-Lake View, and Senate Democratic Conference Leader John Sampson of Brooklyn, with support from the Western New York delegation. But the Assembly’s budget resolution cut out these same reforms and, worse, both chambers did not restore funding for public universities.

A new system allows New Yorkers to sign up for alerts when sex offenders move into or out of a community

A new system allows New Yorkers to sign up for alerts when moderate and high-risk sex offenders move into or out of a community.

The state Division of Criminal Justice Services system allows New Yorkers to flag communities of interest to their family and then get alerts by a phone, e-mail, text message or fax. They can sign up for notices involving three communities at once.

There are more than 30,000 registered sex offenders living in the state.

The alerts will be carried by the State Emergency Management Services system.
