May 6, 2014: Sen. Avella, New Yorkers for Responsible Lending, Oliver Koppell, single-payer health insurance

The newest member of the IDC State Senator Tony Avella shares his end-of-session priorities.

It’s lobby day for New Yorkers for Responsible Lending. Carolyn E. Coffey, Supervising Attorney at MFY Legal Services, Inc. and Jennifer Sinton of South Brooklyn Legal Services discuss debt collection and settlement conferences.

Former state Attorney General and long-time Assemblyman G. Oliver Koppell is launching a primary challenge against State Senate co-chair and head of the IDC Jeff Klein. Why does Koppell want to re-enter the political fray? We will ask him.

Richard Gottfried, Chairman of the Assembly Health Committee, and Dr. Danny Lugassy,  a board member of Physicians for a National Health Program, explain their continued push for the New York Health bill which creates a universal, single-payer health insurance program.
