Take action on this legislation HERE. The Legislative Session in Albany has adjourned, although lawmakers may return at some point this summer if agreement is reached on certain legislation. We appreciate your action on several bills throughout the session. The Conference, and our allies in the NY Alliance Against Assisted Suicide, were successful in highlighting the many dangerous consequences of such a policy.
The bill was amended under the radar to allow for the denial not only of tube feeding, but oral feeding as well, even if the patient never requested it. Thankfully, the bill advanced no further. The Conference strongly opposed the measure and worked to educate Catholics about how it fails to treat human remains with reverence and respect.
A CAN alert generated about 10, messages to legislators. We heard from safe environment directors in the arch dioceses that this would be very problematic in terms of ensuring the protection of children in our programs, as background checks would not pick up older crimes, including violent crimes against children. We actively lobbied both houses and also activated the Catholic Action Network, which resulted in 8, messages to legislators in just over a day. We noted the good intentions of the legislation but insisted it needed to be amended to allow not-for-profits working with children and vulnerable adults to learn about criminal convictions of prospective volunteers and employees.
Our message was heard loud and clear and a deal to pass the bill fell apart last night over concerns in the Assembly about language.
This legislation is likely to be revived for passage if the houses return to Albany at the end of the month and agree on amendments. We will continue working toward appropriate amendment language that protects children and vulnerable adults. The Catholic Action Network generated about 4, messages to legislators. The bill passed in the Senate but, sadly, not in the Assembly.
First, the Board of Regents withdrew proposed regulations that would have required public schools to review the instructional program of religious and independent schools. Secondly, the Regents embarked on a series of stake-holder meetings deed to gather input on a new framework for enforcing instructional mandates for religious and independent schools. The new framework recognizes the long history of academic success of the overwhelming majority of religious and independent schools as evidenced by such schools being accredited by independent agencies, chartered by the Board of Regents and registered with the State Education Department.
Third, legislation was introduced in the Assembly which 1 requires the State Education Department Commissioner to approve accreditation agencies and 2 stipulates that schools accredited by such agencies would be deemed in compliance with the substantial equivalency statute. Although the bill passed the Assembly, there was no action on the measure in the Senate. Applications were received from just fewer than of the 1, religious and independent schools.
Once again, we thank you for your support of the Catholic Action Network, and wish you a relaxing summer. Hot Issues Assisted Suicide S.Adult seeking hot sex Cossayuna NewYork 12823
