NEW YORK—Mayor Bill de Blasio today released the following statement on stimulus negotiations in Congress:
“A deal that sidelines local aid is a deal that sidelines our recovery. The latest proposal out of Washington abandons New York City and cities across the country, ignoring that we are America’s economic engine.
The entire point of a stimulus is to spur economic growth and help working class families. This proposal fails to do exactly that.”
