Montaukett Recognition Passes Legislature For Fourth Time, Awaits Action From Hochul

The State Legislature has again united behind a proposal to officially recognize the Montaukett Indian Nation — but once again will wait to see if the state’s governor will sign the designation into law. It is the fourth time that the legislature, prompted by the East End’s state representatives, have approved recognition for the Montauketts. The three previous times, however, the governor has vetoed the measure. But all three of those vetoes came from former Governor Andrew Cuomo, and supporters of the measure hope that, perhaps, Governor Kathy Hochul will take a different tack. “For years, the New York State ... by Michael Wright

Some Changes at Airport Affecting Pilots Take Place Despite Ruling

Even though a judge at least temporarily halted the planned closure of East Hampton Airport on May 17 and its reopening two days later as a private facility with curfews and use restrictions, the ruling came too late to stop certain technical changes that may impact some flight operations. On May 19, the airport’s official identifier, “KHTO,” and its publicly available GPS-based instrument approach procedures disappeared right on schedule from the air traffic control system and from aeronautical charts. The approach procedures are required to conduct landings when the ceiling and visibility fall below the minimums for visual flight. As ... by Peter Boody

After Court Case, 1st Congressional District Lines Look Familiar — And Benefit Republicans

The special master appointed by a Steuben County judge to redraw New York’s State Senate and congressional district maps after the courts tossed out maps drawn by Democratic legislators has completed his work. The new district boundaries, which are expected to be finalized on Friday, take back many of the partisan advantages Democrats had baked into the process when they took over the redistricting task after a nonpartisan commission, made up of equal numbers of Democrats and Republicans, failed to come to a consensus last fall. Locally, the biggest change will be in the 1st Congressional District. Democrats had proposed ... 18 May 2022 by Stephen J. Kotz
