News Roundup for June 19

State Senator Jose M. Serrano posted on the Room Eight blog to urge his colleagues to pass the The Climate Change Solutions Act and Solutions Fund, bills that would increase investments in energy-efficiency programs and clean energy development.

Bob Kapstatter at the Daily News (article not online yet) reports that Adolfo Carrion did not reappoint four members of Community Board 4 who opposed the Yankee Stadium plan, a repeat of his actions last summer, when he got rid of three dissenters and demoted the chair of CB4. We discussed this controversy in a post a couple months back.

A Daily News editorial praises the decision by the Council and Mayor to increase library funding so neighborhood branches can stay open six days a week. It remains to be seen if the funds will provide for alternatives in Highbridge, where the local library is closed for two years for renovations.

Yesterday's New York Post feature on people working the night shift profiles an overnight guard at Woodlawn Cemetery, as well as men enrolled at Hostos and BCC, on top of multiple jobs.
