STATEMENT OF MAYOR MICHAEL R. BLOOMBERG ON GOVERNOR DAVID PATERSON'S VETO OF A. 2565/S. 2664
"This is not the time for unfunded mandates, no matter how well-intentioned. In vetoing this costly legislation, Governor Paterson has made a difficult and wise decision that will save the taxpayers of the State and the City millions of dollars, demonstrating the courage to control spending in this difficult fiscal climate. The State and the City will continue to work together to provide quality services to people with HIV/AIDS, without having to make some of the painful choices that a new mandate would have forced. I commend the Governor for his actions."
