STATEMENT BY MAYOR MICHAEL R. BLOOMBERG ON FINAL PASSAGE OF THE ECONOMIC STIMULUS PACKAGE
"While in Washington this week, I made it clear that the sooner we can get dollars following into our cities and states the better. The leadership of the House and Senate deserve credit for getting a final package completed and I look forward to seeing President Obama sign the bill into law. I want to again thank our entire Congressional delegation, who fought hard and delivered for New York. We are still reviewing all of the details to determine the amount of funding allocated to the City. Although it's clear that this new federal support won't solve all our budget problems, it certainly will help address the enormous fiscal challenges we face."
