Truck ban on BQE? Golden says it=E2=80=99s possible

By Paula Katinas
Brooklyn Daily Eagle

Transportation officials might be forced to consider a total ban on
truck traffic on the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway (BQE) at some point
within the next few years due to the deteriorating condition of the
roadway, a top state Senate Republican predicted.

In an interview with the Brooklyn Eagle, state Sen. Marty Golden (R-Bay
Ridge-Southwest Brooklyn) said the BQE is in such bad shape,
particularly in the section located in Brooklyn Heights, that a ban on
trucks could become necessary by the year 2025.

=E2=80=9CThey might have to cut off the BQE to trucks,=E2=80=9D Golden told=
the Eagle.

One way to head off that possibility is to have the state authorize a
way to expedite the process in which roadway repairs are made, according
to Golden, who said officials are looking into streamlining the
bureaucratic process that contractors face in repair projects. =E2=80=9CIt =
would
allow them to work faster to get projects done,=E2=80=9D he said.

The BQE is scheduled to undergo major repairs starting in 2020,
according to The New York Times, which reported that the $1.7-billion
project will focus on a 1.5 mile-stretch of the highway located between
Atlantic Avenue and Sands Street.

The BQE was built between 1944 and 1948.

In another transportation-related development, Golden said he is pushing
MTA to lower the tolls on the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge so that Brooklyn
residents get the same toll discount enjoyed by Staten Islanders.

While he feels sympathy for Staten Islanders and believes residents of
that borough deserve a break on the bridge toll, Golden said Brooklyn
residents also deserve a discount in view of the fact that many of them
travel frequently to Staten Island to shop or visit family members.

=E2=80=9CThey can=E2=80=99t get off the island any other way but the bridge=
. But we
can=E2=80=99t get on the Island. It should be the same price as Staten Isla=
nd,=E2=80=9D
he said.

Golden, who plans to run for re-election this year, sat down with the
Eagle in his Bay Ridge district office at 7408 Fifth Ave. for a
wide-ranging interview on his priorities for the current legislative
term, which began Jan. 3.

Golden, a retired cop and a former City Council member, was first
elected to the state senate in 2002 and has steadily moved up the ranks
to become one of the top Republicans in the chamber.

Golden said one of his main priorities is to fight to ensure that New
York City gets its fair share of education funding. =E2=80=9CWe have to make
sure we get the right amount of money,=E2=80=9D he said.

Over the past 10 years, Golden was among the elected officials who
worked to obtain funding to enable School District 20 (Bay Ridge-Dyker
Heights-Bensonhurst-Borough Park) to construct new school buildings as
well as add extensions to existing schools.

Because of that effort, District 20 was to create 10,000 new seats for
students in local schools, he said.

But the 10,000 seats might actually fall far short of what the district
needs, according to Golden, who said enrollments have jumped.

=E2=80=9CWe were told 10 years ago, =E2=80=98Our schools are overcrowded. I=
f you give us
10,000 seats, it will help.=E2=80=99 We created 10,000 new seats and the sc=
hools
are still overcrowded,=E2=80=9D Golden said.

Golden wants at least part of the education funding to go toward
programs in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) programs,
as well as arts programs.

The State Legislature has not passed Republican-led bills to allow
education on tax credits for parents of religious and private school
students. Golden vowed to continue fighting for passage.

=E2=80=9CWe believe this is something important,=E2=80=9D he told the Eagle=
. A tax
credit would help families, he said. =E2=80=9CYou would be able to pay for =
your
child=E2=80=99s education.=E2=80=9D

Funding for NYPD is also high on Golden=E2=80=99s list of priorities. =E2=
=80=9CI fight
to keep the flow of dollars,=E2=80=9D he said. =E2=80=9CWe work to make sur=
e the NYPD
has the tools they need to keep the streets safe.=E2=80=9D

The funding from the state pays for things like additional bulletproof
vests for cops and bulletproof glass for patrol car windows.

One area of concern is the rising rate of opioid addiction in New York
state. =E2=80=9CIt=E2=80=99s not a ghetto drug. It=E2=80=99s happening to d=
octor=E2=80=99s kids,=E2=80=9D Golden
said.

People start out on painkillers and then turn to heroin when they can no
longer find a doctor willing to prescribe painkillers, he said. =E2=80=9CTh=
ey
cut heroin from fentanyl,=E2=80=9D he said. Fentanyl is dangerous because i=
t is
much more potent, he said. =E2=80=9CThe kid is addicted by the second or th=
ird
hit of heroin,=E2=80=9D he said.

Golden added that he believes there are not enough rehab centers.

On another topic, Golden said senior citizens need help making ends
meet. He is pushing a bill that would ensure that senior citizens do not
have to pay more than 30 percent of their income for rent. He also
worked on a bill to raise the maximum income from $50,000 to $58,000
under the Senior Citizen Rent Increase Exemption (SCRIE) program. The
change allows more seniors to qualify for SCRIE.

=E2=80=9CYou name it, we=E2=80=99re on top of it,=E2=80=9D Golden told the =
Eagle.
