Andrew Cuomo signed a law authorizing the use of cameras on school bus swing arms to record and then charge drivers for illegally and unsafely passing stopped school buses.Earlier this month, board members approved having School Superintendent Kevin Whitaker and Board President Paul Abbott reach an accord with the city. The two officials have previously met with city officials to discuss the plan.The discussion considered having the city, or a vendor of the city’s choice, install the cameras at no costs to the district. The city, or vendor, would then, in payment, receive any money collected through fines from drivers successfully prosecuted for illegally passing a stopped school bus. “In an effort to address the continued violation of motor vehicle operators illegally overtaking or passing school buses and placing students at risk of injury or death, the New York State Legislature passed and the Governor signed legislation amending the Vehicle and Traffic Law providing for the installation and use of safety cameras on school buses and allowing for the adoption of procedures to adjudicate owner’s liability for an operator illegally overtaking or passing a school bus,” the Board’s agenda resolution said.Drivers caught on camera passing a stopped bus would face $250 tickets, with higher fines for repeat violators. The cameras, mounted on the stop sign that extends outward whenever a bus is stopped, will automatically record each vehicle that passes it illegally.State transportation officials have estimated motorists illegally pass stopped school buses tens of thousands of times each day in New York. During a one-day crackdown on the problem in May, 2019, police around the state issued 626 tickets for illegally passing a school bus.School buses transport 2.3 million children in New York state each school day, according to state figures.

Andrew Cuomo and the DMV commissioner as moot. State lawyers argued in court papers that officials late last year had begun planning to “permit New Yorkers to receive a driver’s license that bears an ‘X’ gender identification marker through an automated application process.”But first, the DMV needs to modify its computer system so it can create internal license records without a binary gender selection. The agency expects that to happen in the fourth quarter of 2021, or later, Gregory Kline, the DMV’s deputy commissioner for administration, said in court filings. A Lambda attorney on Tuesday welcomed the development, but said New York needed to do more.“Every day that a person is denied accurate identity documents is a day in which their rights are unconstitutionally deprived, and in which they suffer harm. We will continue to prosecute our case on behalf of Mx. Saba so that all nonbinary New Yorkers can have accurate state identification that they need without undue delay,” attorney Carl Charles said in a prepared statement.A DMV spokesperson said New York has taken a number of steps to protect and advance the civil rights of New Yorkers who are transgender or gender nonconforming.“The DMV understands the importance of this issue for so many New Yorkers but cannot comment further as this relates to pending litigation,” Lisa Koumjian said in an email.New York City and New York state permit nonbinary people to obtain birth certificates with an “X” gender marker. And more than a dozen states offer “X” gender markers for driver’s licenses, according to Lambda.Saba already has two identity documents with an “X” marker: a New York City birth certificate and an earlier driver’s license from Pennsylvania. But Saba wanted to exchange the Pennsylvania license for a New York license.In arguing to dismiss the lawsuit, the state invited Saba to come into a DMV office and go through a manual application process that would result in a license bearing an “X” marker. It was not clear if Saba intended to take up the DMV on its offer.
View Comments Neeson says: “She was on life support…I went in to her and I told her I loved her, said ‘Sweetie, you’re not coming back from this, you’ve banged your head.’” Then the actor says he remembered their pact. “That was my immediate thought…’OK, these tubes have to go. She’s gone.’” Their love affair started on Broadway, when they sizzled onstage in Anna Christie in 1993. They went on to become a highly-respected married acting couple on the stage and screen, until she died suddenly in 2009. And now, five years later, Liam Neeson tells 60 Minutes he still can’t believe Natasha Richardson is gone. In the heartbreaking interview, Neeson talks for the first time about arriving in the Canadian hospital where Richardson was brain dead after her skiing accident, and about the couple’s pact to turn off life support if either of them were ever in a vegetative state. After Anna Christie, Richardson went on to win a Tony Award in 1998 for playing Sally Bowles in Cabaret and later starred on Broadway in Closer and A Streetcar Named Desire. “[Her death] was never real,” Neeson tells Anderson Cooper on the episode, set to air Sunday, February 23 at 7PM on CBS. “It still kind of isn’t. There’s periods now in our New York residence when I hear the door opening, especially the first couple of years…anytime I hear that door opening, I still think I’m going to hear her.” Neeson returned to the boards to play Oscar Wilde in The Judas Kiss and John Proctor in The Crucible, but hasn’t appeared on Broadway since Richardson’s death. His new film thriller Non-Stop opens in theaters on February 28.
Based on the 1975 children’s novel by Natalie Babbitt, Tuck Everlasting tells the story of a young girl named Winnie Foster and her friendship with Jesse Tuck and his family, who become immortal after drinking from an enchanted spring. Featuring music by Chris Miller and lyrics by Nathan Tysen (collaborators on The Burnt Part Boys) and a book by Tony nominee Claudia Shear (Dirty Blonde), the show will be directed by Casey Nicholaw. No word yet on casting, but the previous production was set to star Andrew Keenan-Bolger as Jesse Tuck, Carmello Carmello as Ma Tuck, Sadie Sink as Winnie Foster and Michael Park as Pa Tuck. Bull Durham is scheduled to play September 3 through October 5. Directed by Kip Fagan, the musical will feature a book by Ron Shelton and music and lyrics by Susan Werner. Shelton received an Oscar nomination for the Bull Durham screenplay and also directed the film. The show is inspired by Shelton’s time on and off the Minor League Baseball field and tells the story of veteran catcher “Crash” Davis who is brought to the Durham Bulls to prepare rookie pitcher Ebby Calvin “Nuke” LaLoosh for the majors. Annie Savoy, the muse of the Bulls, has a tough choice to make – each season she converts one player from an also-ran to an all-star by sharing her wisdom and her bed. The love triangle heats up, as each character fights with their own wants and hopes for what the future holds. Tuck Everlasting is to receive its world premiere in Atlanta after postponing a pre-Broadway engagement in Boston last summer. The musical will now play January 21, 2015 through February 22 as part of the Alliance Theatre’s 2014-15 season, joining the previously announced Bull Durham, which has now set dates for its run.
