ALBANY, January 11, 2016 ─ Today Senator David J. Valesky (D-Oneida) announced that he will be introducing legislation to bring greater accountability to government by reforming the lobbying law. Senator Valesky is urging Governor Andrew Cuomo to include these important reforms in his State of the State agenda.

State Senator Jose Peralta today announced significant policy changes to his legislation that is intended to legalize and regulate the use of hoverboards and electric unicycles in New York State. In December, Senator Peralta introduced a bill (S. 6260) that would no longer consider these popular devices to be “electric personal mobility assistive devices” under the State's Vehicle and Traffic Law. Some of the modifications to the legislation (S. 6260A) include the imposition of civil penalties for the reckless operation of these unique devices.     

     Senator Jack M. Martins (R-7th Senate District) is inviting residents to share their views by completing his 2016 Legislative Questionnaire.  The brief questionnaire enables residents to share their views on a number of different issues, including New York State’s property tax cap, workforce development, paid family leave, minimum wage, and distracted driving.

availability of exceptional recreational facilities; and
WHEREAS, Attendant to such concern, and in full accord with its long-
standing traditions, this Legislative Body is justly proud to commem-
orate the 70th Anniversary of Snow Ridge Ski Resort, to be celebrated

WHEREAS, Owned and managed by Cyndy Sisto and Nick Mir, Snow Ridge Ski
Resort is a small ski area located in Turin, New York, in the nearby Tug
Hill region; the ski area's loyal fans come for the inexpensive tickets,
night skiing, and the exceptional kids' programs; they stay for the
fluffy, powdery snow; and
WHEREAS, With an average of 230 inches of snowfall annually, and
record of 374 inches in one year, it has become known for having one of
the heaviest snowfalls in the East; and
WHEREAS, Called the best kept secret in the East, Snow Ridge Ski
Resort generally operates from mid-November to early April, and has an
elevation of 2,000 feet with a vertical drop of 500 feet, and about 130
acres of skiable area which features 22 trails; and
WHEREAS, In addition, Snow Ridge Ski Resort encompasses a little chal-
et-style lodge and restaurant, and a little rental shop with the basics;
future plans consist of turning the facility into a four-season resort;
and
WHEREAS, It is with great pleasure that this Legislative Body acknowl-
edges the success of the Snow Ridge Ski Resort and recognizes its
contributions to the local and State economies, fully confident that it
will continue to enjoy the sparkling successes it has experienced thus
far; now, therefore, be it
RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause in its deliberations to
commemorate the 70th Anniversary of Snow Ridge Ski Resort in Turin, New
York, on January 23, 2016; and be it further
