The presentations from these agencies can be downloaded from the Members' Only section of our website. Monday night's Infrastructure Policy Networking Event at 677 Prime was a great success, with over 35 legislators in attendance. Congratulations again to Legislators of the Year Assembly Majority Leader Joseph D. Morelle and Senate Temporary President and Majority Leader John J. Flanagan.
