HAWLEY: REVELATIONS OF MORELAND COMMISSION DEEPLY TROUBLING

A statement from Assemblyman Steve Hawley (R,C,I-Batavia)

            “Today’s New York Times bombshell about the corruption of the Moreland Commission makes it clear that good government reforms are still desperately needed in Albany. These allegations are alarming, and I encourage the U.S. Attorney's Office to perform a full investigation to root out the corruption embedded in the Capitol. I have sponsored several bills that will help clean up Albany, including the Public Officers Accountability Act, which would strengthen penalties for corruption, bribery, and misuse of campaign funds, and strip the pensions of officials who are convicted on corruption charges. Passing this legislation is a great first step toward making Albany work for the people again.”

HAWLEY COMMENTS ON BLUE CROSS BLUE SHIELD OF WNY’S MEDICAID WITHDRAWAL

            Assemblyman Steve Hawley (R,C,I-Batavia) is deeply concerned with the announcement by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Western New York that it is withdrawing from Medicaid programs in six Western New York counties, including Orleans County. The company cited $40 million in losses over the past three years as justification for the move. Hawley encourages any constituents who currently have a managed care program with Blue Cross Blue Shield to transition to another provider before their coverage ceases on October 31, 2014.

            “The decision of Blue Cross Blue Shield of Western New York to withdraw from Medicaid programs is major news to anyone who receives care from this program. Fortunately, there are other managed care plan providers in Western New York ready to enlist those who lose their coverage through Blue Cross Blue Shield. My office is ready and available to help anyone affected to find a new health care provider. If you have been affected, don’t hesitate to reach out for assistance,” said Hawley.

            Assemblyman Steve Hawley (R,C,I-Batavia) today joined elected officials in Pembroke to announce details about the new Western New York Veterans Memorial Cemetery. Sen. Charles Schumer announced the cemetery may be named after William Donovan, a native Western New Yorker, World War I veteran and head of the Office of Strategic Services during World War II, a precursor of the CIA. As a fellow veteran and Ranking Minority Member of the Assembly’s Veterans Affairs Committee, Hawley has been a strong supporter of creating the new cemetery. The final name will be chosen by the V.A.

            “A veteran’s cemetery right here in Pembroke is great for Western New York’s military families. This location will benefit military families as they pay their respects for a loved one. I encourage veterans and others to write in support of the Donovan name or other suggestions. As plans for the cemetery advance, I’ll continue working with local, state, and federal officials to make it a reality,” said Hawley.

Happy Independence Day!  In the 238 years since this great country’s founding we have stood for liberty, personal responsibility, and freedom.  I look forward to reflecting and celebrating today with my friends and family, and I hope you do the same.
