Brooklyn – State Senator Martin J. Golden (R-C-I, Brooklyn) today is announcing that he has invited local student entries in the New York State Senate’s Earth Day Poster Contest, a statewide competition that encourages student awareness of environmental issues.

Senator Patrick M. Gallivan (R-C-I, Elma) joined Senator Patty Ritchie, (R-C, Heuvelton) Chair of the Senate Agriculture Committee, and members of the Senate Republican Conference to unveil their 2016 “Planting Seeds” legislative plan to support New York’s family farmers and boost the agriculture economy. Planting Seeds recognizes the economic impact of the 100,000 people who currently make up New York’s agricultural workforce and includes proposals to help ensure that the state’s leading industry continues to grow.

Senator Joseph Griffo is joined by Oneida County District Attorney Scott McNamara, left, on Monday, Feb. 16, 2016, as the Senator announces his proposed legislation that would enhance work requirements and accountability for SNAP benefits.

UTICA – State Senator Joseph Griffo on Tuesday proposed a set of new statewide rules that would require recipients of certain public assistance benefits to apply for work, as well as strictly limit what those benefits can be spent on.

Senator Sanders was not afraid to sit up close and personal with his constituents to hear their issues, concerns and suggestions.

State Senator James Sanders Jr. (D-Rochdale Village) hosted a free bus trip to Albany for his constituents on February 13, 2016 so they could join him during the 45th Annual Legislative Conference of the New York State Association of Black and Puerto Rican Legislators. Some 150 people from the community participated and were Sanders' guests at his State of the District address. He also co-sponsored two panel discussions, one on Minority and Women-Owned Business Enterprises and the other on workers’ compensation.

Senator Patrick M. Gallivan, (R-C-I, Elma) Chairman of the Senate Standing Committee on Crime Victims, Crime and Corrections, announces committee members approved eight key bills during the group’s first meeting of 2016.  The legislation includes several measures to increase restrictions on sex offenders in New York. 

“Following careful review by committee members and staff, these bills will soon be considered by the full Senate,” Gallivan said.  “The legislation will go a long way to keep our communities safe and to help improve our criminal justice system.”
