“All of our senators represent someone who answered the call to help our country in its hour of need, and now those brave men and women need our senators to answer their call for help,” said Mayor Bloomberg as part of his remarks at the press conference.
President Obama has indicated he will sign the legislation if it passes the Senate before the current session of Congress ends in December.
