Bringing Greater Transparency to the State Liquor Authority
In October 2019, the Governor signed my bill, Assembly Bill 4315 which I cosponsored with Senator Brad Hoylman (S55), that requires the New York State Liquor Authority (SLA) to create and maintain a public database of information that is specific to on-premise liquor licenses. Much of this information is already in digital format as it […]
Fighting for Responsible Energy Policy
I wrote to Governor Cuomo in August 2019 to express my concerns about the proposed siting for the Bluestone Energy Project, which would bring 26 670-foot wind turbines to Broome County. While projects like this are critical for fighting climate change, the proposed site for these turbines lies in an area with high numbers of […]
Advocating for Solar Power
New York has taken important steps to fight climate change this year, including the passage of the Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act. To achieve the goals of this landmark legislation, we will need to be innovative in our approach to renewable energy. To this end, in August 2019, I wrote again to Governor Cuomo […]
Installation of a Speed Camera Along West Street
On June 28, 2019, I was happy to join the Department of Transportation’s Commissioner Polly Trottenberg and other colleagues for a press conference along West Street in Lower Manhattan to announce the installation of a new speed camera on the busy thoroughfare near two elementary schools. The School Safety Camera bill I sponsored in the […]
Advancing Improvements at the MTA
In the 2019 Session it was my pleasure to help pass legislation that would ensure upgrades to the electrical substation that is located under Grand Canal Court Park at the corner of Avenue of the Americas and Canal Street. This will allow for necessary upgrades to the power load along the A, C, and E […]
Advocating for Property Tax Reform
Over the last several months, I have written multiple times to the New York City Office of Management and Budget (OMB) about how the speculative nature of the New York City real estate market has caused property values to balloon at the expense of local residents. This, in turn, has caused an exponential increase in […]
NY Times: ‘Not Just One of the Boys’: How Women Fought Their Way to N.Y.’s Seat of Power
A century after the first two women arrived in Albany, New Yorkers elected a record number of women to state government. Here are the stories about how they made their mark. By Vivian Wang / March 25, 2019 https://www.nytimes.com/2019/03/25/nyregion/new-york-women-politics.html New York’s government has never looked so female. After record numbers of women ran and won […]
School Zone Speed Camera Bill Passed
I am thrilled to report that on March 19, 2019 my school zone speed camera expansion bill was passed in both the Assembly and Senate. This historic passage is the culmination of several years’ work to ensure that all children, their caregivers, and school staff are protected against the dangers of speeding motorists as they […]
Testifying in Support of Elizabeth Street Garden
In March 2019 I testified before the City Planning Commission (CPC) at the Department of City Planning (DCP) regarding the Uniform Land Use Review Procedure (ULURP) application that would destroy Elizabeth Street Garden. This difficult and complicated ULURP is a prime example of the need for the DCP to exact an evaluative and nuanced understanding […]
Opposing the Williams Pipeline
March 2019 The Williams Pipeline is a 23-mile pipeline proposed by Williams Transco that would run under New York Harbor to deliver fracked gas from Pennsylvania through the waters off Brooklyn, Queens and Staten Island. What could possibly go wrong? Williams Transco’s application for the pipeline was approved by the Federal Energy Regulatory Committee (FERC) […]
