Palumbo Leaves Albany Optimistic

Statement from Assemblyman Anthony Palumbo (R,C,I,Ref-New Suffolk)
June 20, 2018

“As session came to a close today, I left Albany with generally good feelings about this year. I am very proud to have secured many victories for our communities, including $175,000 in funding for the North Fork mental health initiative, which will help provide school counselors for our students. We were able to preserve over 875 acres set aside by the Old Shoreham Nuclear Power Plant ensuring all future development of the area is environmentally conscious. We also secured record setting funding for our schools, and finally, record funding to combat the heroin and opioid epidemic. We accomplished a lot this session, and I hope to see further progress next year, by enacting term limits, campaign finance reform, Brittany’s Law and additional tax savings to make Long Island more affordable.”
