SENATOR MURPHY SUPPORTS A PAIR OF SENATE BILLS PREVENTING DRUG DEALERS FROM PREYING ON CHILDREN
Measures Would Increase Penalties for Drug Sales to Anyone Under 14

Albany, NY - As Co-Chairman of the New York State Task Force on Heroin and Opioid Addiction, Senator Terrence Murphy has been urging his colleagues to pass tougher laws punishing drug dealers. The New York State Senate responded yesterday by passing two bills to help keep illegal drugs out of the hands of children and teens. The bills would help tackle rising drug abuse among our youth by increasing penalties for the sale of drugs to anyone under 14 years-of-age and for the sale of illegal drugs in parks or at playgrounds.

"Drug dealers have no shame. They prey on teenagers, even children, and brazenly push their toxic drugs in public parks and playgrounds," said Senator Murphy. "I have been pushing for tougher legislation to hold drug dealers accountable for their despicable crimes and I will continue to do so until the war against heroin and opioid addiction is won. Children, families and are very way of life are being threatened for the sake of a few dollars."

There has been a recent increase in drug use - especially opiate-based substances - by young adults and teenagers, and with it, an increase in overdoses. Many of these youngsters start experimenting in their teenage years with addicting prescription drugs provided by drug
dealers who prey upon young people.
 A bill (S208) sponsored by Senator Jack M. Martins (R-C-I, Mineola) creates the crime of criminal sale of a controlled substance to a child in the first degree, making the sale of a controlled substance by an adult to a minor under the age of 14 a Class A-II felony.
"Adults who sell dangerous, illegal drugs to young children are predators, plain and simple. They are targeting them and selling them poison, trying to get them addicted in order to make money," said Senator Martins. Right now, every community in New York State is battling a heroin and opioid epidemic; here in Nassau County, heroin related deaths reached record levels last year. Giving law enforcement stronger tools to take the dealers who are poisoning our kids off the streets and out of our communities is a necessary step to combat this epidemic. I hope the Assembly will join the Senate in passing this important legislation."
Bill (S994) sponsored by Senator Martin J. Golden (R-C-I, Brooklyn) would increase the penalties for the sale of controlled substances if it occurs on park grounds or playgrounds. Current laws penalize persons who sell controlled substances on the grounds of day care centers and educational facilities, but not park grounds or playgrounds.
 Senator Golden said, "Parks and playgrounds should be about swings, slides, and fields, not drugs. This legislation will better protect our children from drug dealers especially in places where they are supposed to be safe. Stricter laws are on the books to reduce the presence of drugs in school zones, and today, the Senate has approved this bill that would similarly guard parks and playgrounds. We must advance these laws, in the wake of the prescription drug and heroin crisis throughout our city and state, to keep drugs away from our children."
The bills will be sent to the Assembly.

Astorino: A Word to the New York Business Community -- 
and Those Who Rely on It 

March 3, 2016 

http://r20.rs6.net/tn.jsp?f=0012n8dQzESMe_Mmt2h_gK21nAcc27E47Nc6C9a6qH4b8KxyT04Xj8HNefVPtlTAw-nnYctUq0XxvDuptg3OiWnfdkPbDCM2Sv8-khV3CZsGQgWBGTHUF9-b-4Lx6py9ozr-7nBfqpFGq0ogSEby8q18TJw-MEOMdhxNneOfv50CcUyi4D4pN0juw==&c=_6k1zr5sim8QZFa68MmbjGdnrpSGRmprmmejDKx3JLvNMLHjz-kSKQ==&ch=jBA_Q12yJyvOogkapHRbCqxp2oMFny2re3lLce_Fsl3FXBuuuKWneA==
A Word With The Business Community

Script:

Hi. This
is Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino.

It's good
to see you again.

From time
to time -- when I think something's really important -- I share some thoughts
with you using these videos.

Today, I'm
hoping to speak with the New York business community -- those of you who own or
manage mom-and-pop shops, mid-sized businesses, farms, large companies -- and
everyone who works at one of them, for that matter, which is most of us.

We all
have an interest in a healthy business environment in New York. It's what puts
food on our tables.  It's what barely covers the ridiculous taxes we have to pay
to live in this state.

In recent
years, though, bashing businesses has become a popular tool for aspiring
politicians.

It's
become one more way they can divide us for votes -- turning employee against
employer, those starting out against those who've been around awhile, black and
Hispanic against white -- whatever it takes.  

Instead of
talking honestly about ways to make New York economically competitive again --
instead of governing responsibly -- these politicians agitate for career gain.

They make
huge promises they know will cost the state more jobs. But they do it anyway
because it's good politics.  It makes them sound progressive and big hearted.

As though
it's progressive and bighearted to put mothers and fathers out of
work...

This year,
though, the bashing has reached new heights.

It's now
being led by our own governor, who has to know better.

The
governor is spending his days crisscrossing the state in a rented Winnebago --
not building up businesses, but tearing them down. He is systematically working
to make business, particularly small fast food franchise owners, the scapegoat
for the problems caused by our inept, high-tax, high-regulation state
government.

I never
thought I'd see the day when the governor of a state would tell McDonald's and
Wendy's and Burger King -- which employs tens of thousands of New Yorkers, to
"get out of the hamburger business."

You know,
governor, they just might.

But it's
not just the fast food business this governor is agitating against.  He's
agitating against business itself, directly suggesting that New York companies
are somehow anti-taxpayer.

He's
stirring up irresponsible discontent against a New York business community
already halfway out the door to Florida, Texas, Ireland or Mexico.
 

The New
York business community has been very good to this governor.

Perhaps
it's time to have another conversation.

NO EXCUSES FROM MURPHY CAMP


YORKTOWN, NY - Matthew Slater, chief of staff for Senator Terrence Murphy, issued the following statement expressing regret over today's Journal News article:

"Today's 'story' is old news. Almost a month ago, the Murphy family publicly acknowledged in the Daily Voice that their family restaurant exercised the legal option to pay their overdue taxes late with interest and penalties, a situation the restaurant's business manager, Patrick Murphy, has confirmed multiple times." 

"After the Senate's ethics training session for Senators last week, Senator Murphy proactively approached the Legislative Ethics Commission to review his financial disclosure. The issue with Senator Murphy's disclosure report is that of form over substance. 

"The property in question was in fact listed, but in the wrong section, which was confirmed to the reporter by the bipartisan Legislative Ethics Commission. 

"We apologize for the embarrassing situation and have already amended the report to list it properly. Senator Murphy has submitted amendments that not only correct the mistake, but provide more information than is required, which further prove his commitment to an open and transparent government."

SENATOR MURPHY UNVEILS TRAVELING VETERANS' WALL MEMORIAL 

Yorktown, NY - A solemn procession led by Senator Terrence Murphy, military veterans from all branches of service and students was on hand to dedicate a Vietnam veteran's memorial at Mildred E. Strang Middle School.
 
A long-time supporter of the men and women who serve our country, Senator Murphy was touched by the presentation. "Our veterans are what make this nation so unique. They gave us our freedom. They protect us and make us the greatest country in the world,' he said. "Yet every veteran I've ever met is humble about their accomplishments. The humility, dedication and selflessness they've shown is a fine example of how we should all live our lives. They are truly American heroes."
 
As part of the ceremony, a traveling Veteran's Wall of Fame sponsored Senator Murphy and the New York State Senate Veterans' Hall of Fame was unveiled in the lobby of the Middle School. The wall features Yorktown veteran Eugene Lang, a Purple Heart recipient, who earned his honor in Vietnam in 1968.  "I was a refugee when I came to this country in 1956," Lang noted. "All of my friends were citizens, but none of them went to war. I did because I'm proud to be part of this country."
 
The members of American Legion Post 1009 were also on hand to honor their brother in arms. Senator Murphy and Dr. Ralph Napolitano each laid a reef at the Vietnam veteran's memorial site in front of the school. Prior to Lang's speech, the school's chorus graced the audience with their renditions of "The Star-Spangled Banner" and "This Land is Your Land."
 
Carl DiLiberti, an army veteran who served in Saigon during the Vietnam War said at the ceremony, "When we first came back from Vietnam it was hard to readjust and to talk to people who didn't understand what it was like over there. I think it's good that after all this time we're finally getting recognized for our years of service to our country."
 
 John Giacomini, a navy veteran who also served in Vietnam added, "It's nice to see the children taking an interest in American history. It's important that we don't forget the people who sacrificed so much to keep us free."
 
The Veteran's Wall of Fame will be at the Mildred E. Strang Middle School through March 11. It will then travel to the Mt. Pleasant Community Center, where three veteran's - Jack Carosi of Mt. Pleasant, Gregory T. Lobato of Sleepy Hollow and Roy Westmoreland of Pleasantville - will be honored at a ceremony on Sunday, March 20th at 12:30.
