Nation; their reputation is synonymous with excellence in the arduous

strength of the American spirit through actions of the most heroic
magnitude; their sacrifices and their selfless dedication merit tribute
and recognition by all citizens of this great Nation; and
WHEREAS, This Legislative Body is proud to honor Lawrence E. Scott,
Jr. upon the occasion of his designation as the 2015 Fireman of the

demonstrated his character and his compassion for the welfare of others

ments; and
WHEREAS, This Legislative Body cannot express sufficient gratitude to
those devoted individuals who recognize that the preservation of life is
a sacred responsibility and who make that responsibility their own by
serving as volunteers; and
WHEREAS, It is the sense of this Legislative Body that we should give
special recognition to those who work so assiduously for the betterment
of their communities, and acknowledge publicly the heroic good works
performed by the volunteer fire departments of this great Empire State;
now, therefore, be it
RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause in its deliberations to
honor Lawrence E. Scott, Jr. upon the occasion of his designation as the
2015 Fireman of the Year by the Port Gibson Volunteer Fire Department;
and be it further

In an effort to crack-down on individuals who deliberately abandon their animals, New York State Senator Mike Nozzolio and his colleagues in the State Senate have enacted legislation (S.410) increasing the penalties for this crime.  Under the new measure, those who willfully abandon their animals could see a maximum sentence of one year in jail and/or $2,000, an increase from one year in jail and/or $1,000.
