NEW YORK – Today, New York City Mayor Eric Adams and Chairman Jerrold Nadler, dean of the New York congressional delegation, issued the following statement after today's bipartisan congressional delegation meeting:
“We had a collaborative and productive meeting with members of the congressional delegation this afternoon to discuss the issues that are most urgent for our city.
“That includes the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, how we are working through it, and how the recently passed Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act revitalizes our city's critical infrastructure.
“We also spoke on the rise in gun violence in the city and how we can collectively ensure we don't lose any more lives to senseless violence. Our meeting additionally covered what New Yorkers need, particularly regarding housing. We have already come together as a delegation to urge the Biden administration to send New York City more funding for housing assistance and agreed to continue to work together to keep families in their homes with food on their tables.
“In these unprecedented times, it is more important than ever for all levels of our government to work in tandem to provide for the needs of our constituents. By working together, we can continue to get New Yorkers the help they need, while investing in our social infrastructure to keep New York City competitive in arts, business, and culture.”
