NEW YORK – New York City Mayor Eric Adams released the following statement regarding the end of Albany’s legislative session:
“After months of advocacy, New Yorkers achieved major victories in Albany.
“The creation of a NYCHA Trust will funnel billions of dollars to residents for critical repairs. Legislation facilitating the conversion of vacant hotels to housing will deliver much needed relief to our homelessness crisis. And keeping pedestrians on our streets safe and allowing life-saving 24/7 speed cameras is a victory for us all.
“While there is more work to do to deliver on the priorities New Yorkers are asking for, we are optimistic that there is a way forward on key elements, including ensuring we achieve the shared goal of smaller class sizes without forcing the city into a fiscal crisis and impacting programs for our most vulnerable students. I want to thank the Governor and my colleagues in Albany for their partnership through this session.
“We’ve delivered for New Yorkers over and over again, but we will continue to fight to remove guns from our streets, protect our communities, and create a safe, prosperous, and just city for all New Yorkers.”
