The New York State Senate today passed legislation (S2810), sponsored by Senator Kenneth LaValle (R-C-I, Port Jefferson), that would prevent academic fraud by banning the sale of electronic theses, term papers, and dissertations. 

Senator Patrick M. Gallivan, (R-C-I, Elma) says the New York State Senate has passed legislation (S5598) that would establish the new crime of inciting violence against a police officer. In recent years, there has been an increase in violent crimes committed against police officers and this measure would help prevent individuals from deliberately inciting violence targeting law enforcement by creating a new class D felony.

Senator Patrick M. Gallivan, (R-C-I, Elma) says the State Senate has passed legislation to help provide additional economic development resources so that more New York farmers can succeed and create jobs. The bill (S2250), co-sponsored by Senator Gallivan, allows Industrial Development Agencies (IDAs) to expand their support of New York’s agricultural economy by making technical and financial assistance available to farmers.

See the flyer for more information about the dates and times we'll be at senior centers and libraries throughout the district. 

The New York State today passed legislation that creates one August primary date for state and Congressional races, saving taxpayers at least $25 million and bringing the state into compliance with federal election requirements for overseas balloting.  The bill (S6604), sponsored by Senator Fred Akshar (52nd Senate District), would designate the third Tuesday in August as the date to merge the current federal non-presidential primary held in June and the state primary held in September.

  Section  1.  Subdivision  9 of section 2023-a of the education law, as

amended to read as follows:
  9.  Nothing  in  this section shall preclude the trustee, trustees, or
board of education of a  school  district,  in  their  discretion,  from
submitting  additional  items of expenditures to the voters for approval
as separate propositions or  the  voters  from  submitting  propositions
pursuant  to sections two thousand eight and two thousand thirty-five of
this part; provided however, except in the case of a proposition submit-
ted for any expenditure contained within subparagraphs (i) through  (iv)
of  paragraph  i of subdivision two of this section, if any proposition,
or propositions collectively that are subject to  a  vote  on  the  same
date,  would  require  an  expenditure of money that would require a tax
levy and would result in the tax  levy  limit  being  exceeded  for  the
corresponding  school  year  then  such proposition shall be approved if
sixty percent of the votes cast thereon are in the affirmative.  IN  THE

TION OR PROPOSITIONS COLLECTIVELY WOULD NOT EXCEED THE  TAX  LEVY  LIMIT

SITIONS SHALL BE DEEMED TO HAVE BEEN APPROVED IF FIFTY  PERCENT  OF  THE
VOTES CAST THEREON ARE IN THE AFFIRMATIVE.
