TURNING DREAMS TO REALITIES

ON THE NORTH SHORE

FIRST TERM ACCOMPLISHMENTS
4 pieces of legislation passed with bipartisan support and were signed into NYS law
 
  1. Marie’s Law. Bill A.4784-C. strengthens protections for minors against felony sex offenders by barring the sexual offender from living in a household with the child.

  2. Extending The Small Business Mentoring Program. This new law will extend the MTA Small Business Mentoring Program (SMBP) – Bill A.8020 – for 10 years until December 31, 2029. 

  3. Trampoline Regulatory Bill. Bill A.7250 seeks to regulate the commercial trampoline park industry and increase the safety standards for families in New York State. 

  4. Amending Labor Laws to Enhance Employee Transparency. Bill A.8035 would amend the Labor Law to define the title “employer” for those employees that perform services for an employer through another entity, namely a placement agency. The legislation would clarify this issue and assure that any New Yorker that is willing to work and provide for their family is fairly compensated if they qualify for unemployment insurance.

  1. Public Hearing for Future Shelters. Bill A.7820-A would require the NYC DHS to conduct a community hearing to voice any potential concerns about a proposed shelter site.

  2. Protecting Access to Urgent Care Facilities. Bill A.10470-A would require operators of a healthcare facility to give a 30-day notice to the Department of Health and local officials on the closure, relocation, or decertification of the facility.
