As the first half of the 2015 Legislative session comes to a close (June 15, 2015), the Alliance of Public Retiree Organizations and the National NYCPD 10-13 Organizations has shown limited success in advancing our agenda, which is to protect and enhance our benefits. This is due in part to all the turmoil caused by the ongoing investigations and indictments of some of our elected officials. Fortunately, we still have friends in Albany, who will support our bills. For example, the following bills have been re-numbered and added to the legislative calendar:
1. Health Insurance Protection Bill
Senate S3320 (Lanza) Assembly A3539 (Weprin)
2. Veterans Supplementation Bill (Retirees)
Senate S5065 (Larkin) Assembly 07534 (DenDekker)
It is important that we contact Senators Andrew Lanza, & William Larkin, and Assemblymen David Weprin, & Michael DenDekker, to thank them for their continued support of these two important bills.
If you have a child, grandchild or great-grandchild entering the first year of college in September, make sure you fill out the National NYCPD 10-13 College Scholarship Application. Three $1,000 scholarships will be awarded at the National Convention. (See newsletter for details.)
Don’t forget our annual Meeting/Barbecue, Thursday/June 18th, @ 6:00 PM, Kearsing Edwards American Legion Post #1600, in Pomona. Please save the date and bring a friend. We look forward to seeing you.
