U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, who is a member of the Senate Agriculture Committee, is urging Congress not to tighten its fiscal belt on the backs of children, seniors, veterans, and families facing a constant struggle against hunger. Senator Gillibrand is leading a coalition of one-third of her Senate colleagues pushing the Agriculture Committee to fully fund the nation's food stamp program and restore the already proposed cuts.Senator Gillibrand also announced her plans to introduce an amendment to the Farm Bill to restore the proposed Senate cuts, as she did last year when the bill was on the Senate floor. The 2012 Farm Bill passed the Senate but was never signed into law due to the House of Representatives not taking up their version of the Farm Bill. Republicans from both the Senate and House have also introduced legislation that would cut billions of dollars from the national food stamp program as well as make fewer families eligible.
Deer are on the move across New York & often end up in the middle of the road and in the paths of drivers. Authorities report that drivers can expect to see deer on rural and suburban roads and highways from May through June, especially between dusk and dawn. Last year, over 2,000 incidents involving deer were reports on the State Thruway alone. Drivers can help avoid problems with deer simply by being aware of the animals.If you see a deer on the side of the road, the best approach is to slow down in case they bolt into the roadway.Also, deer tend to move in groups; so drivers should anticipate that if there is one deer on the side of the road, there may be more. If a deer is in the path of your car, drivers should apply their brakes firmly, & do not swerve as it can cause you to lose control of your vehicle. If you do hit a deer, make sure you don't approach it or touch it. Instead, call 911 to have it properly taken care of.
