Remarks by Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg at a Public Hearing on Local Laws

"The first bill before me is Introductory Number 746-A sponsored by Council Members Addabbo, Barron, Boyland, Brewer, Clarke, Comrie, DeBlasio, Foster, Gentile, Gerson, Gioia, Gonzalez, Jackson, James, Lanza, Lopez, McMahon, Oddo, Perkins, Reed, Rivera, Sanders, Sears, Stewart, Vallone, Weprin, Speaker Miller and the Public Advocate Betsy Gotbaum.  This bill renames 67 thoroughfares and public places throughout the City.  The first 11 names I will read are streets named in honor of people who died on September 11, 2001, and although this is a modest gesture, this local law demonstrates the City's commitment to always remember those who perished that day.
