STATEMENT BY MAYOR MICHAEL R. BLOOMBERG ON HOMELAND SECURITY FUNDING IN THE FEDERAL BUDGET
"I am pleased that President Bush's budget has nearly doubled the amount of Homeland Security funding for high-threat localities to $1.45 billion. Washington is listening to us, abandoning its population based funding schemes and moving more money towards New York City where it is needed."
