Bradley has been sharply critical of the Bush administration for
passing a Medicare bill that helps the drug companies more than
it helps seniors. He will fight to get the federal government
to pay more attention to the needs of New York State:
Bradley is in favor of protecting seniors from fee increases
in the Elderly Pharmaceutical Insurance Program (EPIC).
He supported legislation that would establish fines between
$500 and $5,000- depending on the severity of the violation- for
defying the Managed Care Bill of Rights (A.8604).
Assemblyman Bradley also supported legislation that creates
the Managed Care Consumer Assistance Program (A.4454-A). The MCCAP
would provide comprehensive information about people's managed
care choices, rights and responsibilities.
The Assembly passed a phased-in takeover of the local share
of the Family Health Plus program. Effective January 1, 2005,
the state will assume 50 percent of the local share of Family
Health Plus expenditures and on January 1, 2006, the state will
assume 100 percent of the local program costs.
Bradley fought to restore $40 million in cuts to Westchester's
hospitals and rejected a new "sick tax" on hospitals and other
health care providers. He is also fighting to save the Westchester
County Medical Center, which is in danger unless it gets help
from the federal government.
Bradley has fought hard to reform state government. He's pushed
to open up the budget process and reform the state's system for
campaign finance and lobbying. Bradley has also been critical
of the Bush administration for sending homeland security money
out to places like Montana and Wyoming.
Assemblyman Bradley knows that protecting White Plains families
is a high priority:
Bradley sponsored a bill designed to assure compliance with
New York's Sex Offender Registration Act by providing additional
information to relevant officials and to persons who are subject
to the registration provisions of the Act (A.11599).
Assemblyman Bradley also sponsored a bill that prohibits the
issuance of an order of recognizance or bail pending the determination
of an appeal where the defendant received a felony sentence, other
than a class D or E felony, for committing a sexual offense under
Article 130 of the Penal Code (A.1371).
He sponsored legislation that authorizes security personnel
and employees of nuclear electric generating facilities to use
physical or deadly physical force to prevent burglary, criminal
trespass or arson (A.7201).
Bradley supports tougher gun laws to help get more guns off the
streets and protect our families:
Bradley has introduced bills that restore funding for schools
and improve the quality of education:
Every year Adam Bradley fights to restore the Tuition Assistance
Last year he restored $4.4 million to Westchester Community
Since taking office, he has secured over $74.8 million in aid
for schools while at the same time protecting the STAR tax relief
program that assists eligible property-taxpayers.
Adam Bradley is a strong advocate of preserving Westchester's
environment. He has pushed to hold polluters responsible for the
damage they cause, improve air pollution standards, enforce smart
growth guidelines, and create open space in our communities:
He has supported $5 million for open space.
He sponsored a bill that allows a person to institute an action
for a violation of the provisions of the environmental quality
review even if the injury does not affect the public at large
He sponsored a bill that requires the Public Service Commission,
in consultation with Office of Public Security, to perform a security
and decommissioning study on the Indian Point Nuclear Power Generating
Assemblyman Bradley made the right choice for White Plains families
in last year's budget battle. The bipartisan budget that he and
Senator Vincent Leibell supported prevented the largest property
tax increase in state history. He understands that education funding
is needed to keep property taxes down. Bradley is opposed to suggestions
that STAR should be sacrificed to pay for the court ordered changes
to the state's school funding system. Since taking office, he
has secured $74.8 million in aid for schools while at the same
time protecting the STAR tax relief program that assists eligible
