Senator Leroy Comrie Chosen To Chair The Powerful Committee On Corporations, Authorities, And Commissions
NYS Senator Leroy Comrie

The Democrats have taken over the leadership positions in State government in the last election.  Therefore, State Senator Leroy Comrie representing District 14 including parts of Southeast Queens like St. Albans, Cambria Heights, Jamaica, Hollis, Rosedale, Laurelton, Kew Gardens, Queens Village and other neighborhoods has been appointed the important chair Of The Committee on Corporations, Authorities, and Commissions.  He was appointed by Senate Majority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins (picture on left).  This is an significant appointment given the economic development being done in the upgrades of two area airports JFK International and LaGuardia Airport, Downtown Jamaica, and now the Amazon HQ2 in Long Island City.

Comrie is the second area State Senator to get appointed to a major economic chair position from Southeast Queens.  Recently State Senator James Sanders, Jr., was appointed as the new Chairman Of The Senate Committee on Banks.  Comrie and Sanders should wield significant economic influence in the area which could bode well for residents fortunes especially with all the economic opportunity.

Both Senators have been creating training programs to help area residents get jobs and business opportunities within the epicenter of economic development that is now Queens, NY.  The role of the Committee on Corporations, Authorities, and Commissions has been described by Former Chair Jeffrey Dinowitz as the following "The Committee holds jurisdiction over the laws that affect private, non-profit and public corporations in New York, with a focus on the organization and actions of the State’s public authorities to ensure these entities act in a responsible, fiscally sensible, and transparent manner.

These public corporations and authorities are created through state law to provide infrastructure, mass public transportation, power generation, and construction services. The largest such authority is the Metropolitan Transportation Authority which operates subways, buses, and commuter rail lines in the New York City metropolitan area. Additionally, the Committee monitors the activities and policies of the Public Service Commission. The Commission is responsible for ensuring that residents of New York are being provided with reasonable service and rates from water, electric, gas, and telecommunication utilities."
