SODIUM DECISION IS IMPORTANT WIN FOR CITY The city’s Board of Health notched an important victory Wednesday as a Manhattan judge upheld a first-of-its-kind mandate requiring sodium labels and warnings for certain menu items at chain restaurants. “Information is power,” said Supreme Court justice Eileen Rakower, rejecting the National Restaurant Association's argument that the required warnings amounted to a burden on either consumers or franchise owners.

...The ruling, if upheld, is critical for the Board of Health, which had seen its powers curtailed in recent years — first by a Court of Appeals ruling in the so-called soda ban case, and then, more recently, when a state Supreme Court judge ruled the health department could not require flu vaccines in order for children to attend city-licensed preschools and day care centers.

STILL SUPPORTIVE — Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Wednesday reaffirmed his support for a hospital in Utica after funding was stripped from his executive budget proposal. “It is something I support,” Cuomo told reporters in Kingston who had inquired about the facility. “I believe the hospital should be built. The question is the best way to fund it. And that’s what we’re talking through during the budget process.” Last year, Cuomo and the Legislature agreed to a $1.4 billion pool of capital funding in the state budget aimed to create new hospitals in Brooklyn and upstate. The funding was evenly divided between upstate and downstate, with $300 million of the upstate share directed for a hospital in Oneida County. To the surprise of the Utica-area lawmakers who pushed for the funding, tucked away into the governor’s executive budget proposal last month was a reappropriation of the $300 million set for the new hospital in Utica.

NOT FAMILIAR WITH IT Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Wednesday said he’s “not familiar” with Ithaca Mayor Svante Myrick's proposal to open a facility where heroin addicts can use the drug under medical supervision, but plans to pursue a plan to curb heroin later this year. The proposal, widely covered in the media, would allow supervised injection sites.

HUNGER ACTION — Lawmakers and representatives of food banks around the state held an event outside the Senate chambers on Wednesday to request an additional $16.5 million for the Hunger Prevention and Nutrition Assistance Program.

ACROSS THE RIVER — State Sen. Joseph Vitale has a new plan for how to address the tax exempt status of nonprofit hospitals, after Gov.
