IT'S NOT OVER YET!
Although the Legislative Session technically ended on Wednesday, it appears like we will be headed back to Albany to address the important items that are left to do. My first six months in Albany have been a crash course in the way state government operates.

One item that sits atop my agenda, which has seemingly mystified state politicians for decades, is property tax relief. Yet with even with the property tax cap due to expire, we are now closer than ever to achieving a permanent solution to the property tax crisis. When we return next week, the Assembly should act immediately to make the tax cap permanent while we work to reach a bipartisan agreement on the many other important issues we face.

This week we voted on legislation to empower parents and teachers, restore local control of schools and address the overemphasis on standardized tests. Some highlights of the Senate proposal would require test questions and the corresponding correct answers to be released, an additional 45-day public comment period following the release of the new draft regulations now being put together by the State Education Department, and a comprehensive review - with education stakeholders - of the effectiveness and appropriateness of Common Core standards.

17 out of the 19 standardized tests that New York students, like my three public school children, have to take are mandated by the Federal government. In addition, the disastrous roll-out and implementation of the Common Core standards is a clear sign that a top-down federal interference does not work. After successfully blocking the Governor's recent efforts to further increase our reliance on testing, I have acted today in an effort to return decision making to the local level. READ MORE

Regulatory Relief for Small Business
This week the Senate passed my legislation to protect businesses from over-zealous state regulations that could hurt the continued growth of the economy. The bill would require the state to conduct a more thorough examination of the impact proposed regulations may have on jobs and employment opportunities. 

The legislation seeks to ensure that the potential impacts of rules and regulations developed for businesses by state agencies are fully examined. Currently, the State Administrative Procedure Act (SAPA) only requires agencies to analyze whether a proposed rule will affect jobs and issue a job impact statement. This current approach does not fully consider many of the potentially critical factors that would negatively affect business performance or result in job losses.

When I came to Albany I did so to give everyone the opportunity to succeed. New York continues to lag behind other states when it comes to job creation, and the passage of this bill is a significant step in the right direction by having our state agencies evaluate how any future regulation or rule would impact job creation. If we are serious about giving everyone an opportunity to succeed, we must hold accountable the detrimental overreach of government, which has only killed jobs and stifled economic growth. READ MORE

Enough is Enough!
As a father of three kids I firmly believe we must take every precaution to protect our children from sexual violence and abuse. Earlier this year we passed milestone legislation to protect our children from sexual predators. This week, we passed legislation aimed that to ensure our children at college are equally protected. 

Our colleges and universities are supposed to provide safe, secure environments that foster personal growth and academic excellence. But cases of rape, sexual assault, dating violence and other crimes continue to occur each year on college campuses throughout the nation.

The unfortunate reality is that we live in dangerous times. New York State has a responsibility to provide the necessary resources to combat and educate people of these heinous acts which can have a long term devastating impact on young lives. READ MORE

Getting rail safety back on track
Following the horrific Metro North train accident in February, I vowed to address the need for increased safety measures to protect local commuters and community members. This week, the Senate passed my legislation which would allow local municipalities to install traffic cameras at local grade crossings to better monitor traffic at these dangerous transportation intersections. 

This was a collaborative effort with our local officials in an effort to provide them with additional tools to improve the safety of our local roads where they intersect with dangers grade crossings. Under this provision, our local towns would be able to install traffic cameras to ensure motorists and our trains are following the law. 

 Since the accident in February, greater focus has been given to improving the safety of the grade crossings throughout the state, including the allocation of of nearly $300 million by the federal government in an effort to eliminate these dangerous crossings. Another one of my bills, which has made its way through Senate Committees and is currently on the calendar awaiting a vote, would require Metro North to issue recorded safety briefings at the departure of each train and periodically thereafter.

MURPHY GETS RAILWAY SAFETY
BACK ON TRACK
ALBANY, NY - Following the horrific Metro North train accident in February, Senator Terrence Murphy, who represents the area of Valhalla where the accident occurred, vowed to address the need for increased safety measures to protect local commuters and community members. Thursday, the New York State Senate passed legislation, authored by Senator Murphy, which would allow local municipalities to install traffic cameras at local grade crossings to better monitor traffic at these dangerous transportation intersections. 

"This was a collaborative effort with our local officials in an effort to provide them with additional tools to improve the safety of our local roads where they intersect with dangers grade crossings," Senator Murphy said. "Under this provision, our local towns would be able to install traffic cameras to ensure motorists and our trains are following the law."

On February 3rd, Train 659 collided with an SUV at the Commerce Street grade crossing in Valhalla, causing the death of five commuters and one motorist who was trapped on the grade crossing.  The northbound train's scheduled stops were all in the 40th Senate District. 

Since the accident, greater focus has been given to improving the safety of the grade crossings throughout the state, including the allocation of of nearly $300 million by the federal government in an effort to eliminate these dangerous crossings.

Hudson Valley Senator Bill Larkin said, "I am proud to have co-sponsored this important piece of legislation.  Senator Murphy's leadership on this issue helped make the passage of this bill a reality.  If this bill is signed into law, I strongly believe it has the potential to save lives."

New Castle Supervisor Rob Greenstein said, "The passage of this legislation will dramatically increase compliance and enforcement of our railroad crossing safety laws.  I welcome any and all technology that would increase the safety of our roads and railways.  I applaud Senator Murphy for carrying this through the Senate on our behalf and look forward to our continued work together."

Mount Pleasant Supervisor Carl Fulgenzi said, "Senator Murphy has recognized serious railway safety issues we face in local government and has made securing or eliminating grade crossings a priority. We are thankful that due to Senator Murphy's leadership, the State is stepping up to the plate here and his efforts to make us safer will save lives."

Assemblyman Tom Abinanti has sponsored this bill in the Assembly where it awaits approval. A second bill authored by he and Senator Murphy, which has made its way through Senate Committees and is currently on the calendar awaiting a vote, would require Metro North to issue recorded safety briefings at the departure of each train and periodically thereafter.
