The New York State Senate this week gave final passage to a bill that helps fight the high cost of prescriptions by preventing consumers from overpaying for medications. This new measure (S6940) sponsored by Senator Kemp Hannon (R-Nassau), helps consumers become better informed about the price of drugs and prohibits two costly practices – gag clauses and clawbacks – used by pharmacy benefit managers (PBMs). Each have come into question recently as prescription drug prices continue to rise.

Located in the heart of Long Island sits a mysterious and fabled kettle lake. As the largest fresh water body on the Island, the lake was left by the receding glaciers that created Long Island’s dynamic landscape of beautiful beaches and rocky shores. Often touted at the original “Hamptons,” Lake Ronkonkoma has always been a summertime getaway, dating all the way back to Long Island’s original inhabitants, the Algonquians, who summered and fished in this great lake.

Senator Jim Tedisco (R,C,I,REF-Glenville) today announced that the New York State Senate is expected to pass several public safety bills to harden the soft targets of our schools against assault, including two bills he sponsors to help our school districts pay for the expense of improving school safety, and increase penalties for violent crimes committed on school grounds.

Every day, at least one Long Islander dies from an opiate overdose.  And those are only the ones we know of - the ones directly caused by Heroin or prescription painkillers such as Percoset or Oxycodone.  About 7 out of 10 died at home.  If you don't think it can happen to someone you care about, please think again.  Overdoses can happen to everyone.
