The newly-redrawn 27th congressional district will make it more difficult for incumbent Democrat Kathy Hochul to win re-election this year. And two area towns are exploring a job sharing arrangement to reduce costs.

Congresswoman Kathy Hochul has introduced legislation that will enhance 9-1-1 communications systems.
The bill is known by the acronym, ALERT ACT, which stands for Allowing Local Emergency Response Technicians to Accept Cellular Texts Act. Hochul's action would require emergency call centers update their handling of emergency text messages and to send an error message if the transmission did not go through.
