Speaker Carl Heastie Convenes Assembly Majority Meeting on Issues Facing MTA

Today the members of the Assembly Majority from the MTA region met to address challenges regarding transportation in and around New York City. We had productive conversations with representatives of the MTA as well as advocates and discussed a number of different options to address these issues.

Our primary concern is to ensure customers have a safe, reliable and efficient transportation system. We are having ongoing discussions to determine how to address these issues including how to properly fund the MTA which is a critical economic driver in New York State.

We look forward to working with our partners in government to develop both short and long term solutions to challenges that are plaguing this critical transportation network.
