This period would cover the beginning of the heating season. The elimination of the sales tax covers heating oil, propane, natural gas, electricity, coal and wood for residential heating purposes. It covers landlords as well as rental units. Tenants or owners would qualify depending on the structure of the unit’s heating and electrical use.
- NYS Governor Kathy Hochul sat down with Dr. Ashish Jha and Dr. Raj Panjabi of the White House to discuss shared concerns about how to meet the monkeypox vaccination needs of New Yorkers. New York State and the Biden administration will continue to work together on vaccine distribution plans to ensure that New York State receives enough vaccines to protect New Yorkers, especially those in communities where transmission rates are high. Governor Hochul said, “In New York State, we have seen a disproportionate number of cases of monkeypox, especially within our LGBTQ+ communities who have been particularly hard hit. I recognize the fear and anxiety this outbreak has caused, especially for LGBTQ+ New Yorkers, which is why my team and I will continue to work around the clock to ensure as many vaccines as possible are available to our residents. “Following my administration’s ongoing conversations with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Monkeypox Response Team, I am pleased to share that New York City has been able to secure a significant number of vaccines to continue our efforts to Respond and meet the needs of our most-at-risk populations, especially men who have sex with men.Thanks to public health partnerships and collaborative efforts already in place, New York will soon have 8,195 doses. We will continue to work with Dr. Jha and the federal government to ensure future allocations reflect the needs of New Yorkers.

- The hill reported Sunday that Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) In an interview that aired Sunday, it was possible the House Select Committee investigating the January 6, 2021, attack on the United States Capitol would make a criminal referral against former President Trump. During the ABC “This Week” interview, the network’s chief Washington correspondent, Jonathan Karl, asked Cheney – who serves as the committee’s vice chairman – whether the panel hearings demonstrated that Trump should be prosecuted. . “Ultimately the Department of Justice will decide that,” Cheney replied. “I think we may well, as a committee, have an opinion on this. And if you think about it from the perspective of what kind of man knows a mob is armed and sends the mob to attack the Capitol and further incites that mob when his own vice president is threatened, when Congress is threatened?
- The viewer report that former US Secretary of State Henry Kissinger said, “There is no alternative to eliminating Iran’s nuclear force”. Kissinger criticizes 2015 Iran nuclear deal, warns against new deal saying it could make Middle East “more explosive”. Former US Secretary of State and national security adviser Henry Kissinger has warned against a new nuclear deal with Iran, saying signing a new deal in Vienna could dramatically increase tensions in the region. The 99-year-old veteran statesman criticized the original 2015 nuclear deal, saying verification efforts to ensure Iran’s compliance – a core part of the deal – would be difficult in practice.
“I was extremely skeptical of the original nuclear deal. I thought Iran’s promises would be very difficult to verify, and that the talks really created a pattern in which the nuclear build-up could have been slowed down a bit but made more inevitable. “As a result, the countries of the region, in particular Israel – Iran’s main enemy – but also Egypt and Saudi Arabia – which they see as the main competitors – were going to be pushed into reactions that could make the situation much more explosive.”
“The new deal being negotiated in Vienna, Kissinger said, has the flaws of the 2015 deal, but now has terms that make it ‘seemingly more tolerable’ for Iran.” So any concerns I had with the original deal, I’m going to have now.
