Rep. Israel Calls on FEMA to Make Co-ops Eligible for Storm Recovery Grants

January 8, 2013

Rep. Israel said, “It seems clear that FEMA’s policy is the result of not understanding the role of co-ops in our community.  But that bureaucratic error in Washington is having real consequences for co-op owners here in New York.  Calling them ‘business associations’ means that co-ops cannot apply for the same type of aid available to other homeowners.  It’s time for FEMA to right this wrong so co-ops in Queens can rebuild after Hurricane Sandy.”

Hauppauge, NY – Today, Rep. Steve Israel (D – Huntington) issued the following statement:

Rep. Israel Announces Legislation to Renew Ban on Plastic Guns

December 7, 2012

Rep. Israel said, “Congress passed a law banning plastic guns for two decades, when they were just a movie fantasy.  With the advent of 3-D printers these guns are suddenly a real possibility, but the law Congress passed is set to expire next year.  We should act now to give law enforcement authorities the power to stop the development of these weapons before they are as easy to come by as a Google search. ”


Rep. Israel Statement on Palestinian Bid for Non-Member State Observer Status at UN General Assembly

November 29, 2012

“The Palestinian bid for non-member state observer status at the United Nations General Assembly is simply unacceptable. The path to peace is at a negotiating table with Israel, not in a building in the East 40s in New York City. I will oppose giving U.S. taxpayer funding to any specialized U.N. agency that admits a full Palestinian state through its U.N. bid.  I also oppose any Palestinian effort to use its enhanced status to gain membership in other international bodies, specifically the International Criminal Court, as a means to de-legitimize Israel.”
