Today in the New York State Senate we passed comprehensive legislation to provide housing and tenant protections that will benefit renters – whether upstate, downstate, urban or rural – against retaliatory evictions and other unfair housing practices.

I represent a largely rural district in the Hudson Valley and Catskills where manufactured housing on rented lots is one of the main affordable housing options. I’m very pleased that, under the legislation passed today, protections have been extended to manufactured housing and mobile homes (preventing landlords from raising the lot rent unreasonably – among other protections for residents).

This is an important win for affordable housing in New York.

Today, the New York State Senate passed five of my bills to support #farms and #farming in New York:

1 bill expanding eligibility for student debt forgiveness for young farmers;

2 bills reducing unnecessary regulatory burdens (one reducing paperwork for farm vehicle registration, another eliminating a prohibition on farmers markets and community gardens in municipal and state parks);

2 bills helping small farmers access technical assistance and expand their markets. #NoFarmsNoFood!
