Statement From Senator Liz Krueger On Ending Non-Medical Exemptions For Vaccinations

Albany – State Senator Liz Krueger released the following statement today after passage of S.2994-A, removing non-medical exemptions for childhood vaccinations, sponsored by Sen. Brad Hoylman:

“When it comes to public health policy, our primary responsibility as legislators is to keep New York families safe. That means relying on the best science, thorough research, and proven medical practice. Across the country we are seeing a resurgence of diseases like measles because of the failure to have children vaccinated – and New York’s outbreak is the largest.

“This has been driven in part by people abusing the vast loophole in our laws created by the religious exemption. The fact that many of those using the current religious exemption are doing so in bad faith is made clear by the arguments employed in opposition to today’s bill, which have relied almost entirely on long-debunked junk science to attempt to prove the dangers of vaccines rather than on any religious scripture. In fact, it is nearly impossible to find any organized religion that has taken a clear official stance against vaccination. Regardless, when one person’s beliefs put other people at risk, the state has an obligation to act.

“The science is clear: vaccines are safe. This is not a religious issue, it is a health issue, and the needs of public health are paramount, particularly those of children and other vulnerable people who cannot be vaccinated for medical reasons. I commend my colleagues in the Senate and the Assembly for passing this bill today, and I look forward to the Governor signing it soon.”

State Senate Passes Bill To Close Sexting Loophole

Albany – Today the State Senate unanimously passed a bill (S.2636), sponsored by State Senator Liz Krueger, to close a loophole in state law that prevents police from charging someone with aggravated harassment if it is committed via text or email. The bill is sponsored in the Assembly by Assembly Member Edward C. Braunstein.

“When I heard what had happened to residents in a building in my district, I was appalled. But I was even more disturbed to learn that police were unable to take any action against the offender,” said Senator Krueger. “Harassment is harassment, whether it happens over the phone or via text. The effect on the victim is the same, and they deserve protection. I thank my colleagues in the Senate for taking action to close this loophole, and I hope the Assembly will move quickly to send this bill to the Governor’s desk.”

S.2636 would close a loophole in the state Penal Law that prevents police from charging someone with aggravated harassment in the second degree if the offense was committed via text and did not include a threat. The legislation was prompted by the actions of a doorman in a building on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, who sent lewd pictures to several building residents.

Though the doorman was fired, police were unable to charge him with a crime – his actions would only constitute harassment in the second degree, a violation, which would have to have been witnessed by an officer in order to issue a summons. S.2636 would include text messages, email, and other forms of electronic communications in the definition of aggravated harassment in the second degree, which is a Class A misdemeanor, punishable by up to one year in prison.

Senate Democratic Majority Passes Domestic Animal Welfare Package

Albany -The Senate Majority Conference today passed legislation to protect the rights and improve the health and safety of domestic animals across New York State. The bills passed included legislation that will raise awareness of safety standards for domestic animals, increase the punishment for cruelty against animals, prohibits the declawing of cats, require the installation and testing of fire protection systems in pet stores, veterinary requirements for pet dealers, and allow report for suspicious animal cruelty.

Bill Sponsor, Senator Liz Krueger said, “The health of our society can be measured in part by the way we treat the animals in our care. It’s just common sense that if you set out to cause extreme physical pain to an animal, that counts as ‘cruelty,’ and you should get more than a slap on the wrist. I thank my fellow Senators for passing this bill today, and standing up for the needs of vulnerable animals.”

“Companion animals and pets provide us with love and affection, and for millions of New Yorkers they are members of the family,” Senate Majority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins said. “Protecting these animals from abuse, mistreatment, and unsafe conditions is the right thing to do. The bills passed by the Senate Democratic Majority will help raise awareness of proper companion animal care and will also increase punishments for inhumane acts against domestic animals. As the new Senate Majority Leader, I was proud to create the Domestic Animal Welfare Committee and select Senator Monica Martinez as its chair, and this legislative package reinforces her leadership on this critical issue.”

The legislation being advanced by the Senate Majority to protect domestic animals includes:

– Banning the Declawing of Cats: This bill, S.5532B, sponsored by Deputy Leader Senator Michael Gianaris, prohibits the performance of declawing procedures on cats.

– Alert System for Pet Owners: This bill, S.4577, sponsored by Chair of Committee on Domestic Animal Welfare, Senator Monica Martinez, creates an alert system for pet owners requiring them to bring in their companion animals during extreme weather conditions.

– Consecutive Sentencing for Multiple Accounts of Aggravated Cruelty Against Animals: This bill, S.5807, sponsored by Chair of Committee on Domestic Animal Welfare, Senator Monica Martinez, removes the 2-year limit to a term of imprisonment to allow consecutive sentencing when a person is convicted of multiple counts of aggravated cruelty towards animals.

– Report of Suspicious Animal Cruelty: This bill, S.3415A, sponsored by Chair of Committee on Domestic Animal Welfare, Senator Monica Martinez, allows mandated reporters of child abuse to also report suspected animal abuse.

– Eliminating the Word “Serious”: This bill, S.2723, sponsored by Senator Liz Krueger, removes the term “serious” in regards to a physically injured animal to ensure a perpetrator’s attempt to harm an animal is penalized appropriately despite the success of said assault.

– Fire Protection Systems in Pet Stores: This bill, S.3078A, sponsored by Senator Joseph Addabbo, requires the installation and testing of fire protection systems in pet stores.

– New Felony Level for Enterprise Animal Fighting: This bill,S.94, sponsored by Senator Kaminsky, introduces enterprise animal fighting as a new felony level offense, consolidates definitions, differentiates the levels of offense, adjusts penalty classifications, and provides consistency to the animal fighting laws.

– Care Standards for Pet Dealers: This bill, S.3828, sponsored by Senator Jen Metzger, provides grooming, sanitation, and veterinary requirements for pet dealers.

– Appropriate Shelter for Dogs: This bill, S.3559, sponsored by Senator Tim Kennedy, increases the penalties for failing to require appropriate shelter for dogs left outdoors.

There is a recognized connection between the abuse of household pets and abusive, aggressive behavior against other people. Animal abusers have been found to be five times as likely to also harm other humans. Additionally, a 2013 study found that 43% of those who commit school massacres also committed acts of cruelty to animals. To address domestic animal abuse and recognize it as a warning sign for more serious crimes, the Senate Democratic Majority created the Domestic Animal Welfare Committee and Majority Leader Stewart-Cousins selected Senator Martinez as its chair. Senator Martinez earned a reputation for leading efforts, as a member of the Suffolk County Legislature, to advance protections for domestic animals. The legislation passed by the Senate Democratic Majority builds on those efforts and will expand domestic animal protections throughout New York State.

State Senate Finance Chair Debunks Pro-Fossil Fuel Report On Divestment

Albany – Today, on the heels of a comprehensive hearing on fossil fuel divestment, State Senator Liz Krueger, Chair of the Senate Finance Committee, debunked a pro-fossil fuel report commissioned by the Suffolk Association of Municipal Employees, prepared by Florida-based firm Foster & Foster.

“At Tuesday’s hearing, one message was hammered home by expert after expert, whether they support our legislation or not: fossil fuels are a bad long-term investment, and they will only get worse,” said Senator Krueger. “This report from Foster & Foster uses the best tools in the climate denial playbook, cherry picking a few of the worst-performing green assets to set up a straw man that has nothing to do with divestment in the real world. If the Suffolk AME leadership was looking for an honest assessment of the impact of divestment on the pension fund, I’m afraid they wasted their members’ money.”

The report, titled “The Cost of Divestment,” compares a list of five fossil fuel-based mutual funds with five carefully selected green energy funds. Looking only at the 10-year average returns of both sets of funds, the report finds that these specific fossil fuel-inclusive funds outperformed over that period (though not over the 2, 3, or 5-year period). The report then uses the average returns of these funds over the past ten years to project 10, 20, and 30 years into the future.

The report makes several erroneous basic assumptions that lead to its flawed conclusions. First, it assumes that all monies divested by the pension fund from fossil fuel holdings will be required to be reinvested solely in green energy stocks. This is neither mandated by the bill under consideration (S.2126), nor advocated by those supporting divestment.

This error is compounded by the reliance on a comparison of five cherry picked fossil fuel energy funds with five green energy funds. Even when comparing these carefully chosen funds, the report’s authors were forced to ignore the fact that the green energy funds outperformed the fossil fuel funds over the last 2, 3, and 5 years, reflecting significant changes in the market as the world begins to adjust to the need for a carbon-free future.

A more accurate historical analysis was performed in 2018 by Corporate Knights, which compared the actual holdings of the fund over the last decade with a scenario in which the fund had divested from fossil fuel companies and reinvested those funds evenly across the remaining portfolio. They found that the fund would be $22.2 billion better off had it divested in 2008, working out to almost $20,000 more for each member and retiree in the system. This state of affairs is likely to be compounded as governments, businesses, and individuals take increasing action to prevent catastrophic climate change.

The report also makes a basic error in directly using past performance as a sole predictor of future returns, something any financial advisor would warn against. Although fossil fuels were profitable investments throughout much of the 20th century, they have underperformed benchmark indices like the S&P 500 over the past decade. The most basic comparison of U.S. fossil fuel stocks to general stocks shows that fossil fuel stocks underperformed by more than 10% on an annualized basis over the past ten years: as of May 1, 2019, the fossil-fuel free S&P 500 Ex-Energy TR Index reported a 16.09% ten year annualized return compared to 5.35% for fossil fuel-inclusive the S&P 500 Energy (Sector) (TR) Index. All indicators suggest this underperformance will continue as technology makes low-carbon solutions the cheaper energy option and the world acts on climate change.

Long-term trends toward a low-carbon economy do not suggest a repeat of any sustained fossil fuel boom similar to previous periods. In fact, a recent report by Mercer, referenced by the Office of the State Comptroller in Tuesday’s hearing, forecast that under a 2°C warming scenario in line with the Paris Agreement, the value of fossil fuel stocks will plummet within the next decade. Not incidentally, the report also found that in a scenario with greater than 2°C of warming, the value of all stocks would fall precipitously.

In 2017, Suffolk AME leaders commissioned a similarly flawed report from Global Analytic Services, primarily based on the writings of Daniel Fischel and Hendrik Bessembinder of Compass Lexecon. Their work was funded by the Independent Petroleum Association of America, and has also been debunked.

“The facts are crystal clear: divesting our state pension fund from fossil fuels will protect workers and retirees from the rapid loss of value that fossil fuel companies will suffer in the coming energy transition,” said Senator Krueger. “New York State should be a leader on this issue, to ensure that our retirees and their children and grandchildren will not only have a pension to enjoy, but also a livable planet on which to enjoy it.”

###
BACKGROUND:
Report: fossil fuel divestment could crimp state pension assets, Newsday

The Fossil Fuel Divestment Act (S.2126/A.1536) would require the State Comptroller to divest the New York State Common Retirement Fund from all holdings in the 200 largest publicly traded fossil fuel companies, as defined by carbon content in the companies’ proven oil, gas, and coal reserves (the CU 200). Divestment from coal companies would be completed within one year; divestment from all other fossil fuel companies would be completed within five years. Currently, ExxonMobil represents the largest single CU200 holding in the CRF, with around $1 billion invested.

Worldwide there are currently 1,055 institutions that have committed to divest, including universities, faith-based organizations, non-profits, municipalities, philanthropic organizations, and national and state pension funds, controlling $8.73 trillion in assets. In 2018, Ireland became the world’s first nation to fully divest its $10.4 billion sovereign wealth fund from fossil fuels.

The list of institutions involved in the divestment movement includes the Teachers Retirement System of the City of New York, New York City Employees Retirement System, California Public Employees’ Retirement System (CalPERS), California State Teacher’s Retirement System; Pratt Institute, Union Theological Seminary of New York City, The New School, and Stanford and Syracuse Universities; the cities of Seattle, San Francisco, Portland, Minneapolis, and Ithaca; the World Council of Churches, and the United Methodist Church USA; Guardian Media Group, the Rockefeller Brothers and Family Funds, The Blumenthal Foundation, and the sovereign wealth fund of Norway. A full list of divestment commitments can be viewed here.

Supporters of divestment argue not only that it is no longer acceptable to financially support the extraction of climate-destabilizing fossil fuels, but also that the state pension fund is exposed to increasing financial risk by holding onto fossil fuel companies, which stand to lose significant value as the world acts to mitigate climate change. The impact of the clean-energy transition is already being felt by these companies, and the economics of renewable energy continues to develop in such a way as to threaten the hegemony of fossil fuels regardless of the actions taken by governments. The Common Retirement Fund has already lost more than $260 million in coal investments since 2010; a recent study by Corporate Knights estimated that the Fund is valued at $22.2 billion less than it would have been had it divested from fossil fuels in 2008 and redistributed those funds across the rest of the portfolio.

The global divestment movement is having an impact on fossil fuel producers, in part through the process of stigmatization, which can damage enterprise value by discouraging engagement by business partners, employees, lenders, governments, politicians, etc, as well as leading to restrictive legislation. The increased scrutiny tar sands have received as a result of divestment and allied stigmatization campaigns was a contributing factor to Exxon’s decision to write down the value of its tar sands reserves. Peabody Energy, a coal producer that went bankrupt in 2016, said of the divestment movement: “the impact of such efforts may adversely affect the demand for and price of securities issued by us, and impact our access to the capital and financial markets.” Shell now cites divestment as a major material risk to its current business model, which could lead to project delays or cancellations and could affect its ability to access capital. The Common Retirement Fund has invested $2.7 million in Peabody Energy, $133 million in Shell, and over $1 billion in Exxon.

Legislature Holds Hearing On Fossil Fuel Divestment

Albany – Today State Senator Liz Krueger, Chair of the Senate Finance Committee, and Assembly Assistant Speaker Félix W. Ortiz, along with other Senators, held a hearing on divesting the New York State Common Retirement Fund from fossil fuel holdings. Discussion centered around the Fossil Fuel Divestment Act (S.2126/A.1536). Video of the hearing, as well as copies of written testimony, will be available here.

“Climate change is the single greatest threat facing humanity; the only rational response is to use every tool at our disposal to prevent and mitigate its most catastrophic impacts,” said Senator Krueger. “Divesting our state pension fund from fossil fuels will protect workers and retirees from the rapid loss of valuation that fossil fuel companies will suffer in the coming energy transition. It will also send a powerful message that it is no longer acceptable to invest in a business model that puts our entire planet at risk. The climate crisis is here – fiduciary and moral responsibility require the process of divestment to begin now.”

“It has become painfully clear that while people have created climate change, we can also provide solutions,” said Assistant Speaker Ortiz. “For years, state funds have been invested in large fossil fuel corporations that pollute our planet. It’s time to divest those funds and invest them into companies that nourish our planet. We have an obligation to protect our environment for future generations; we cannot delay any more. Corporations that continuously pollute the earth breathe no air, have no heart, and will always choose profits over people. They should not be rewarded or supported by New York State funds.”

Among those testifying at the hearing were:

Anastasia Titarchuk
Interim Chief Investment Officer
Office of New York State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli

Daniel Zarrilli
Chief Climate Policy Advisor
Office of Mayor Bill de Blasio
