Protecting the Community through Stronger Code Enforcement
The Senate & Assembly recently passed my bill to crack down on building and code inspectors who don't do their job. We have unfortunately seen issues with buildings that haven't been properly inspected or even inspected at all! When these developments are allowed to move forward after substandard oversight, it creates huge problems. There are safety risks for the users of the structure and dangerous conditions for our first responders. Giving the State the ability to punish these bad actors empowers the monitors on the ground to root out corruption and stop it when they see it. What happened in Ramapo was a destructive scheme that will impact our community for years to come and we must not let that happen again.

Scholarship Opportunity
As a member of the Italian-American Legislators Conference, I am happy to provide an opportunity for 4 students to win $3,000 scholarships; two for academic achievement and two for athletics. 
To qualify for the scholarships, applicants must have an average above 85, good conduct and demonstrate the dedication to pursue and complete a higher education degree, are involved in an organized sport (if applying for the athletic scholarship), active in community services and can demonstrate a financial need. 
Applications can be obtained by calling my office at 845-623-3627 and must be returned to Room 315 LOB, Albany, NY, 12247 no later than 5 PM on April 21.

Saving School Districts Millions

As budget negotiations are still ongoing, we passed a bill in the Senate today that will make a simple fix and save some of our area school districts millions of dollars. School districts are charged exorbitant fees by local governments to collect school taxes instead of allowing them to go directly into the classroom where they belong. My legislation would allow school districts to collect their own taxes and avoid millions in unnecessary expenses. I look forward to working with the Assembly and Governor to get millions of dollars throughout NY back into the classroom.
