ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — A New York state lawmaker is demanding a federal investigation into New York state's care for the disabled following a recent Associated Press story that revealed the case of a man infested with maggots in a state-run group home.Democratic Assemblyman Anthony Brindisi, of Utica, told the AP on Saturday that he is asking the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to investigate the group home and other state-regulated facilities for the disabled where there have been allegations of abuse and neglect.A copy of the report was obtained by The Associated Press, which found that New York state is not alone in making it difficult for members of the public to access records about allegations of abuse and neglect in state-regulated facilities for the disabled.

- BART considers a later daily start during systemwide rebuild
By Michael Cabanatuan - Tuesday Aug 15, 2017
Hundreds of early-morning BART riders will have to begin their commutes an hour later on weekdays — or resort to buses or their cars — as the transit agency struggles to keep up its aging infrastructure while undergoing a massive modernization.BART officials were already working on plans to push back its systemwide opening hour from 4 a.m. to 5 a.m. starting in the fall of 2018 to accommodate seismic retrofitting work on the Transbay Tube.To take care of the estimated 2,400 commuters who ride BART during its first hour of the day Monday through Friday, BART is discussing several plans to shuttle them in buses.A systemwide late start would almost certainly make those predawn commuters cranky by forcing them to board buses or get behind the wheel and take to the highways, which are already getting increasingly more crowded at 4 a.m. Recent Metropolitan Transportation Commission reports showed that traffic on the Bay Bridge during that hour was up 36 percent over the past two years with steep increases on the Richmond-San Rafael and San Mateo bridges as well.On Tuesday, BART Director Joel Keller asked the transit agency’s staff to consider adopting the schedule change this year, but said it should be dependent on a plan to take care of displaced riders.A transportation consultant, hired to study BART’s maintenance efforts, had told the committee that the transit system needed to make tough decisions and carve out more time for work crews to rebuild the aging infrastructure.Unless it steps up its maintenance efforts, Wallgren told the committee, BART runs the risk of falling into a downward cycle of disrepair, decreasing reliability and declining ridership, he said.The amount of time work crews currently have to perform maintenance work on the system is restricted by BART’s two-track configuration, the limited number of places available for workers to get on and off the tracks and its 4 a.m.-to-midnight weekday operating hours, with the last train ending service after 1:30 a.m. Those factors leave crews just 45 to 90 minutes each weeknight for maintenance work, he said, and that’s not enough.Because of Measure RR, BART is on track to avoid such problems, said Wallgren, but more time has to be made for maintenance.
