“Blue cities and states have much more pension fund money than red states. As the saying goes, money talks. It’s time for Comptroller Lander to put money that he manages where his mouth is. New Yorkers need him to fight for our interests at least as hard as red state politicians fight for the oil and gas corporations.”
The proposed class action suit was filed in New York State Supreme Court on behalf of four New Yorkers who say they should be eligible for CityFHEPS, but are closed out because the Adams administration has failed to implement laws expanding the program.
The framework proposes to “increase density and allow housing in appropriate, key areas,” as part of a plan to rezone approximately 300 blocks of the neighborhood.
“If New York is serious about meeting its climate goals, the city must then live up to its stated priorities and give programs the resources to meaningfully follow through on their legislative mandates.”
Lo que necesita saber sobre: ¿cómo inmigrantes indocumentados mayores de 65 pueden solicitar la nueva opción de seguro médico de Nueva York?
En 2022, la gobernadora Kathy Hochul cedió en las negociaciones y dio luz verde a la ampliación de Medicaid para dar cobertura a los inmigrantes indocumentados mayores de 65 años. El Departamento de Salud del estado puso en marcha el programa el mes pasado después de un retraso de un año.
The legislation, introduced in Albany by Assemblywoman Catalina Cruz and State Sen. Brad Hoylman-Sigal, would prohibit policies that restrict the length of homeless shelter stays—aimed at halting the Adams administration’s 30 and 60-day shelter notices for newly arrived immigrants.
Después de meses de negociación bipartidista, la semana pasada un grupo de senadores publicó un proyecto de ley de seguridad nacional de $118.000 millones de dólares que incluia financiación para Ucrania, Israel y seguridad fronteriza para lidiar con la inmigración, pero en menos de una semana el proyecto de ley se hundió.
“This absence of unified design and management can compound inequality. Where some areas of the city have seen the lion’s share of the city’s attention, other areas have been and are in danger of continuing to be completely left behind.”
In 2022, Gov. Kathy Hochul relented and gave the green light to expand Medicaid to cover undocumented immigrants 65 and older. The state’s Department of Health launched the program last month after a year-long delay.
The city’s housing vacancy rate plunged to 1.41 percent in 2023, the lowest it has been since 1968, officials announced Thursday. Options were particularly scarce for low-income New Yorkers: just 0.39 percent of units renting for under $1,100 were available last year.
New York joined eight other states in an agreement to ensure heat pumps make up 65 percent of residential heating and cooling equipment sales by 2030. The technology is a green alternative to traditional systems that run on fossil fuels and contribute to global warming.
