Klein's Independence Group Celebrates a Year



Here is a story from the Norwood News discussing the first year anniversary of the Independent Democratic Conference in the State Senate that was formed by Bronx State Senator Jeff Klein. The article reports that "To be sure, the IDC had a productive year. The four-person caucus—its other members are Rockland County Senator David Carlucci, David Valesky of Syracuse, and Klein’s girlfriend, Diane Savino, of Staten Island—managed to, collectively, pass 68 bills during the 2010 session. The 26-member Senate Democrats passed 103. IDC members introduced and passed legislation dealing with crackdowns on car insurance fraud, efforts to boost the state’s organ donor pool and banning caffeinated malt liquors like Four Loko from stores. The group also advocated for the successful passage of a number of high-profile bills, like marriage equality and the long-awaited ethics reform."

  2. Forget about Klein. BOYCOTT THE RIVERDALE REVIEW instead!

  3. Look at that little picture ... it's like a passport photo. I prefer the big photos of him speaking at a lectern.

  4. It's only been a year but this little caucus has done some big things. I'm impressed.

  5. Banning four loko is retarded. Ok, four loko has something like four beers worth of alcohol and 2 cups of coffee worth of caffeine inside of one can. So what is stopping me from drinking 2 cups of coffee and 4 beers? Nothing. What a dopey law.

  6. Scott Baio is nutty, especially on Twitter

  7. If this is all that's going on then it must be a dull week in local politics with few things of note during the holidays . . . But I'm sure that the political gayety (or is it gaiety?) will resume by January.
