Albany, NY - Senator José M. Serrano (D-Manhattan/Bronx) is on a continued mission to empower the committee system and expand oversight. At the April 22nd meeting of the Senate Cultural Affairs, Tourism, Parks & Recreation Committee, the Senator invited Carol Ash, Commissioner of the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation (OPRHP), to discuss the agency's plan for allocation of increased capital funding. The meeting also covered service cuts and reduced hours and programming in historic parks and summer recreation destinations due to a reduction in State operating aid for OPRHP.
