Senator Venditto's “Stuff-A-Truck” Food Drive

Senator Venditto is asking residents to help those in need by donating non-perishable food items and supplies.

“I am saddened to hear of the passing of Bert Silver, who was a gentle and loving lady. A pioneer in her time, she could have left baseball forever after the passing of her husband Morrie, who led the charge to save Rochester's Red Wings. Instead she became a fixture at the ballpark, eventually serving as Chair of the Rochester Community Baseball Board and instilling the same devotion to our hometown team in her daughter Naomi. Condolences today to all of the Silvers, one of our community's great families.”
 

The story that a Long Island foster parent allegedly got away with abusing children for two decades should make our blood boil. The question remains: Is Albany going to do anything about it?

Tragically, reports of child sexual abuse are familiar New York headlines. At the Horace Mann School in the Bronx, a recent report identified more than 60 former students abused by more than 22 employees since the 1960s. At Poly Prep Country Day School in Brooklyn, famed football coach Philip Foglietta was accused of abusing more than 10 students during his 40-year tenure

Hoylman: It is the height of hypocrisy that this budget seeks to raid $30 million from RGGI in order to make up for lost property tax revenue in communities with failing, dirty power plants”

NEW YORK – State Senator Brad Hoylman (D-Manhattan), Ranking Member of the NYS Senate Environmental Conservation Committee, introduced a “hostile amendment” to the budget today that would undo a budget proposal to raid $30 million in funds from the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI).

NEW YORK - Citing enormous health and economic costs, State Senator Brad Hoylman (D-Manhattan), the American Lung Association, and Environmental Advocates of New York today condemned efforts to further delay implementation of the Diesel Emission Reduction Act (DERA) within the SFY2016-17 Budget. DERA was passed a decade ago with near-unanimous bipartisan support; full implementation was expected in 2010, but has been delayed annually by the Senate Majority. 

A DECADE OLD LAW DELAYED
