New Energy Laws Were Signed, But What Do They Do? 

Governor Kathy Hochul signed three laws yesterday.  The laws are about New York state getting more into green energy.  The governor’s goal is to get the state to an 85 percent reduction of greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.  Now from reading the legislation that was signed yesterday, it’s difficult to know exactly what changes business and home owners would have to make.  That’s because the wording of the text of the bills that were signed yesterday, is vague.  State Senator Tom O’Mara says, when the State’s Climate Action Council comes out with their new rules and regulations, we’ll know exactly what the changes we have to make are, to homes and businesess, in terms of codes rules, heating and cooling. One thing we do know is, geothermal will be a part of it. 


Downstate Congresswoman Fights For VA Hospitals 

 Congresswoman Nicole Malliotakis (R, Staten Island) yesterday sent a letter to President Biden urging him to publicly denounce the Department of Veterans Affairs' (VA) recommendations to the Asset and Infrastructure Review (AIR) Commission to close VA hospitals across the country as a bipartisan group of Senators has committed to blocking the AIR Commission from proceeding. Biden's VA has promised to continue with the work of the AIR Commission despite the Senate's announcement.  "Despite a bipartisan group of Senator's recent statement promising to block the AIR Commission from proceeding, I, and the veterans I represent would like a commitment from you to ensure our local VA medical facilities will continue to operate as normal," Malliotakis wrote.  "Stripping VA medical services from population centers that need them most is simply reprehensible, which is why I request that your Administration publicly denounce these recommendations and halt the AIR Commission process once and for all. Our veterans have given so much to our nation and they deserve the highest standard of care during and following their service."
