Call Governor Cuomo and Tell Him to Sign Veterans Equality Act
Dear Friend,
We need your help to get the Veterans Equality Act signed into law. The bill is now on Governor Cuomo's desk. Cuomo has until May 31 to sign or veto the bill. He's vetoed it twice before, one time on the day before Veterans Day. He promised veterans that he would include the bill in this year's budget. That didn't happen, even though both the Democrat-led Assembly and the Republican-led Senate included it in their own budget proposals. Cuomo can fix that broken promise by signing the bill now.
You can call Governor Cuomo at (518) 474-8390 and respectfully tell him to sign the Veterans Equality Act today and put all veterans on equal footing. Right now, for example, Iraq veterans are eligible to buyback up to three years of pension service credit for their time in the military, but Afghanistan veterans aren’t eligible. That makes no sense. All of the veterans this bill covers volunteered to serve in our armed forces and were willing to put themselves in harm's way for our country. Our state should treat them equally.
It would be great to have this bill become law this week as we head into the Memorial Day weekend. You can help make that happen.  Call Governor Cuomo now at (518) 474-8390 and respectfully tell him to sign the Veterans Equality Act.
Semper Fidelis,
Kieran

MURPHY INTRODUCES LEGISLATION TO HOLD MTA ACCOUNTABLE TO COMMUTERS

FRESHMAN LAWMAKER CALLS FOR REVIEW OF ELEVATED TRACKS, COMMUTER NOTIFICATION SYSTEM IN WAKE OF METRO NORTH FIRE

Chaos abounds in Grand Central Terminal on May 17th as service is indefinitely suspended as a result of a fire underneath train tracks near 119th Street and Park Avenue in East Harlem.


ALBANY, NY  - A two alarm fire under Metro North tracks in Harlem last week shut down service indefinitely with one northbound train stranded only five blocks from the fire. Senator Terrence Murphy, who has been leading the fight to improve the safety of grade crossings across New York, has introduced new legislation calling for the MTA to review all structures and storage areas under elevated tracks as well as a study of the MTA's notification system to perspective users.  

"Considering how many people were impacted by last week's events, and how much money New York State continues to pour into the MTA, we need a full assessment of the structures and storage spaces under the MTA's elevated tracks to ensure there are no potentially dangerous concerns that are being overlooked," Senator Murphy said. "New Yorkers also deserve an assessment of the MTA's notification system which should properly communicate any delays or emergencies to those looking to utilize its service." 

Senate bill 7891 directs the MTA to study and report on potentially hazardous structures and storage areas under elevated train tracks, and its commuter notification system.  Multiple reports confirm that the fire on May 17th was caused by a fuel spill on a hot generator.  In addition, twenty propane tanks were also found at the Urban Garden Center, located directly under the viaduct, prompting the MTA to beg the question if such hazardous material should be allowed in such potentially sensitive areas.  

For many witnesses, last week's chaotic incident reminded them of the 2014 gas explosion that leveled two buildings, killing eight, and damaging the very garden center in question today.

"This is about safety," Murphy added.  "There was clearly an oversight that needs to be properly assessed and rectified.  New York City and the surrounding suburbs are constantly being targeted by terrorists both domestically and abroad.  We must remain vigilant and ensure the necessary safety measures are in place."

The bill has been moved to committee and is expected to pass the Senate before the 2016 session concludes next month.

NEWS FROM
SENATOR MURPHY

A MESSAGE FROM SENATOR MURPHY

Dear Friends,
 
For the past eighteen months I have been honored to serve as the Co-Chairman of the New York State Senate Task Force on Heroin and Opioid Abuse.  This is an issue I have been incredibly passionate about since my days as a local councilman in Yorktown.
 
Along with my colleagues, Senator George Amedore and Senator Rob Ortt, our task force has traveled the State hearing testimony from experts on a wide variety of issues that New York needs to address in order to win the war on heroin and opioid addiction.  Make no mistake, through programs such as I-STOP New York is leaps and bounds ahead of other states in the nation in our efforts.  However, it is clear more needs to be done - and quickly.
 
Last week, we released our full report along with recommendations and legislative proposals to move our State forward.  We believe in the four pronged approach: prevention, treatment, recovery and enforcement.  From expanding educational programs in our schools, to increasing Medically Assisted Treatment options, to providing insurance coverage for extended recovery and giving law enforcement the tools they need to cut off the supply of heroin at the top. 
 
In response to our report my colleagues in the Senate approved 22 bills geared toward implementing our recommendations.  Further, Governor Cuomo has appointed me to his task force to continue my work and I look forward to our combined efforts to see the needed legislation be signed into law.  If there was ever an issue for politics to be put aside for the common good winning this war on addiction is surely it.
 
Wishing you the best in health,

 
Terrence    
REIGNING IN ALBANY'S BUREAUCRATS                  http://r20.rs6.net/tn.jsp?f=001FjpCkku0Qm49ezQm2UYnrOGJFqnRX7lu8m-Dk095Wp9Z3R4eZG2RQyFJAlj00GLAi2iO4TYG0TNrOAeq49kBpbU7K-d4zTP4A4mys9OjkQOla8EOLEjyiW4hGS7bhnBdPzR9_hF1Dlv8tDC8BulUmAgsZj1WWitGVrLef1VWy1p86tvadG_1OiPYIL-CzH74uS3ig4-PHeyxQf_U5qOs7ZNcQ1L3w5PvUmdpivZTDgo=&c=mwc4NOTOJDwcpgcPlA_nwCiNXYhfEotS9bH4epHpP0ANRpMeMkaCXg==&ch=p8lw9SRlMEhV75eta7awG5a3kyUx3NCp_yI0yG4la1Jsm-IAIeWY6g==

When it comes to providing an environment to nurture businesses New York State has consistently ranked at or near the end of the list.  Last week, my colleagues and I approved several pieces of legislation to rein in unelected rulemakers.

As the Chairman of the Senate's Administrative Regulations Review Commission, I know the passage of these bills sends a clear message that my colleagues in the Senate recognize the need for serious regulatory reform for our state.  The burden placed on the business community by layers of bureaucracy needs to be significantly reduced if we are going to elevate New York to the prominence it once held as an economic juggernaut.

In addition, I also introduced the Regulatory Fiscal Accountability Act of 2016.  This legislation would fundamentally change the administrative rule making process by having any proposed agency rule with a fiscal impact of $10 million be returned to the legislature and have a two-thirds majority vote from the appropriate sub-committee.

The legislature has a fiduciary responsibility to make sure our government functions in a fiscally responsible manner which is nearly impossible due to the unchecked power of the wizards behind Albany's curtains!

IMPROVING THE SAFETY OF OUR RAIL SYSTEM
 
On the same day that a two alarm fire under Metro North tracks in Harlem shut down service the Senate passed my measure that allows local municipalities to install cameras at dangerous grade crossings.
 
Following the horrific accident in Valhalla last year, I have introduced several measures to improve grade safety.  Considering how many people either utilize Metro North, or drive over the grade crossings, we must do everything we can to ensure our residents are safe.  A good first step in that direction is to allow municipalities to install traffic cameras at these intersections and I am proud to say my colleagues in the Senate approved this important measure.
 
It is important to note that this would not be a mandate, but instead, provides municipalities with this safety option should they choose to install these systems.
MAYOR DE BLASIO DITCHES SENATE IMPORTANT SENATE HEARING
 
The Senate now has an opportunity to examine the renewal of the trust we have placed in the Office of the Mayor to manage a $9 billion investment by state taxpayers.  I would think if Mayor de Blasio had nothing to hide, he would be willing to come forward to speak on the record.
 
Mayoral Control is about trust.  Mayor de Blasio failed to convinced me to trust him in our first encounter.  His unwillingness to answer questions from me, the press, the public and other Senators proves to us once and for al that we cannot trust Mayor Bill de Blasio.

Subject:  MEDICARE AT AGE 76: IMPORTANT ACTION INFORMATION for NOVEMBER, 2016 VOTE

 


 

IMPORTANT ACTION INFORMATION FOR NOVEMBER, 2016, VOTE

 

Medicare at age 76!

If you don't read this, and do nothing about it, don't complain when it affects you or your loved ones!  This is the second Judge to have read the Obama Care document comments.  More highlights of Nancy's "pass it and then find out what's in the bill"!  Show this to everyone nearing the ripe old age of 76.  These are just a few of the things that we Seniors are going to have to deal with which started in 2014.  Even far left Democrats will not like these.

MEDICARE AT AGE 76, IMPORTANT PLEASE READ - ANYONE WHO DOUBTS THIS IS TRUE CAN DOWNLOAD THE NEW OBAMA CARE AND LOOK UP THE PAGES MENTIONED.  THIS IS JUST THE BEGINNING...THIS should be read by everyone, especially important to those over 75...If you are younger, then it may apply to your parents.

 

Your hospital Medicare admittance has just changed under Obama Care.
You must be admitted by your primary Physician in order for Medicare to pay for it!  If you are admitted by an emergency room doctor, it is treated as outpatient care where hospital costs are not covered.  This is only the tip of the iceberg for Obama Care.  Just wait to see what else went into effect in 2014.

 

YOU ARE NOT GOING TO LIKE THIS... At age 76 when you most need it most, you are not eligible for cancer treatment * see page 272.  What Nancy Pelosi didn't want us to know until after the healthcare bill was passed.  Remember she said, "We have to pass the Bill so that we can see what's in it."  Well, here it is.

 

Obama Care Highlighted by Page Number THE CARE BILL HB 3200 JUDGE KITHIL IS THE 2ND OFFICIAL WHO HAS OUTLINED THESE PARTS OF THE CARE BILL.



Judge KITHIL of Marble Falls, TX - highlighted the most egregious pages of HB3200.  Please read this...... especially the reference to pages 58 & 59.  JUDGE KITHIL wrote:
Page 50/section 152:  The bill will provide insurance to all non-U.S. residents, even if they are here illegally.

Page 58 and 59:  The government will have real-time access to an individual's bank account and will have the authority to make electronic fund transfers from those accounts.

Page 65/section 164:  The plan will be subsidized (by the government) for all union members, union retirees and for community organizations (such as the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now - ACORN)

Page 203/line 14-15:  The tax imposed under this section will not be treated as a tax.  (How could anybody in their right mind come up with that?)

Page 241 and 253:  Doctors will all be paid the same regardless of specialty, and the government will set all doctors' fees.
This is what they do in Sweden too.  I know because Alf's daughter Ann is an OBGYN, and her husband, Thorsten, is a surgeon........

Page 272. section 1145:  Cancer hospital will ration care according to the patient's age.

Page 317 and 321:  The government will impose a prohibition on hospital expansion; however, communities may petition for an exception.

Page 425, line 4-12:  The government mandates advance-care planning consultations.  Those on Social Security will be required to attend an "end-of-life planning" seminar every five years. (Death counseling..)
Page 429, line 13-25:  The government will specify which doctors can write an end-of-life order.

HAD ENOUGH????  Judge Kithil then goes on to identify:  "Finally, it is specifically stated that this bill will not apply to members of Congress.
No wonder they did not see the need to read it....doesn't apply to them!!! THE AMERICAN PEOPLE NEED TO STAND UP TO WASHINGTON ....

I don't know if we can do anything, but awareness helps.

Winds Of Change  --  Warren Buffet is asking each addressee to forward this email to a minimum of twenty people on their address list; in turn ask each of those to do likewise.

At least 20 if you can
.  It has to stop somewhere.
In three days, most people in The United States of America will have this message.  This is one idea that really should be passed around

Maloney Announces $200,000 Investment in Village of Wappingers Falls to Rehabilitate Contaminated Sites, Grow Local Economy   
 
First Stage of Investment Targets Community Outreach, Cleanup Planning  
 
Wappingers Falls, NY – Representative Sean Patrick Maloney (NY-18) announced a $200,000 Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) investment aimed at revitalizing 15 contaminated sites, known as “brownfields,” throughout the Village of Wappingers Falls. The funds will be used to support community outreach and assist with cleanup planning. Such grants are typically the first award in a series of investments aimed at completely rehabilitating contaminated sites.
 
“Working together we can make sure all our Hudson Valley communities are free from industrial contamination,” said Maloney. “Strategic federal investments can help clean up our local communities without costing hardworking taxpayers, while protecting Hudson Valley ecosystems and creating jobs.”    
 
“We are pleased that the EPA has recognized the importance of cleaning up former vacant industrial sites that have become blighted and more critically, has provided funding to begin the process,” said Dutchess County Executive Marcus Molinaro “The County has been a partner with the Village for years working to revitalize the Industrial Park and we look forward to the continued progress on making the property a vibrant and productive asset for the Village and the County. We are grateful to Congressman Maloney for his efforts in securing this important funding.”
 
“This federal aid from the EPA will enable Wappingers Falls to assess longstanding environmental concerns associated with previous industrial uses,” said Wappingers Falls Mayor Matt Alexander. “It is our hope that this funding will catalyze environmental remediation and sustainable development – which are essential to the revitalization process of this historic Village.  We especially want to thank Congressman Maloney and his office for their attentive consideration in helping us move this effort forward.”
 
The award is part of the EPA’s brownfield program, which provides funding for brownfield assessment, cleanup, revolving loans and environmental job training. The investment in Village of Wappingers Falls will initiate the rehabilitation process at sites throughout the country. Potential sites in Wappingers Falls include former metal plating facilities, dry cleaners, ink and dye manufacturing facilities, industrial storage, gasification facilities, and mechanical manufacturing operations. The investment is part of a larger EPA effort, investing over $55 million to redevelop contaminated properties, grow local economies and create jobs while protecting public health. The Village would be required to take further steps to secure additional investments.
