AN ACT to amend the vehicle and traffic law, in relation  to  compliance
  with the federal Real ID Act

  THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section 1. This act shall be known, and may be cited as the "New  York
Remembers Act".
  S 2. Legislative intent. The legislature hereby finds and declares the
following:
  (a)  That  the  federal  Real ID Act, which was passed by Congress and
signed into law in 2005, is a  coordinated  effort  by  the  states  and
federal  government, intended to improve the reliability and accuracy of
state-issued identification documents, which serve to inhibit a  terror-
ist's ability to evade detection by using fraudulent identification;
  (b) That the standards established by the federal Real ID Act resulted
from  a  Congressional study investigating the various factors which led
to the horrific tragedy that occurred on September 11, 2001;
  (c) That in addition to developing tamper  proof  technologies  within
the identification card itself, states were directed to initiate a proc-
ess  whereby the documentation submitted by an individual applying for a
state issued driver's license could be verified as authentic;
  (d) That the verification requirement was meant to ensure that terror-
ists were not issued identification cards based  on  the  proffering  of
forged or otherwise fake documentation;

     Senator Jack M. Martins (R-7th Senate District) announced that a comprehensive package of legislation to enhance women’s rights and protect those who are most vulnerable to abuse and discrimination has been signed into law by Governor Andrew Cuomo.

(Astoria, NY) – In light of the recent agreement between the city and state to fund the four-year MTA capital projects budget, Senator Michael Gianaris applauded the proposed deal which would include an upgrade of the train announcement system to the N and Q lines in Astoria. The project would represent the next step forward in improving the communication network at subway stations in western Queens, accompanying the real time countdown information and automated announcements Senator Gianaris first brought to N and Q subway stations in the fall of 2013.

Senator Patrick M. Gallivan (R-C-I, Elma) announced that all eight bills from the Senate’s comprehensive Women’s Equality Agenda have now been signed into law. These measures were a top priority for the Senator and were passed in January on the first day the Senate could begin voting on legislation.

(Middletown, NY)-Senator John J. Bonacic (R/C/I-Mt. Hope) is pleased to announce that the Women’s Equality Agenda, a top priority of the Senate Republican Conference, has been signed into law by the Governor. The measures include efforts to fight human trafficking, require equal work for equal pay, combat sexual harassment in the workplace, as well as stop gender discrimination in employment and housing decisions.

Senator Patrick M. Gallivan (R-C-I, Elma) says over $39 million in federal grants will be used to support public and non-profit organizations in New York State that provide transportation services to seniors and people with disabilities.  The funding from the Federal Transit Administration will be used to purchase vehicles and to support transportation providers throughout the state.
