In October 2008, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey issued a report outlining the progress that has been made in the rebuilding of the World Trade Center site and redevelopment of the surrounding area. The report also included modifications to the World Trade Center design, and adjusted timetables for the completion of construction projects along with a target overall completion date of 2013.
This hearing seeks an update on the status of redevelopment projects in Lower Manhattan and at the World Trade Center site. In addition, the Speaker and the Committees will seek information on the impacts that the current economic climate will have on the advancement of redevelopment plans.

It is important that the reply form be fully completed and returned so that persons may be notified in the event of emergency postponement or cancellation.
Twenty copies of any prepared testimony should be submitted at the hearing registration desk. The Speaker and the Committees would appreciate advance receipt of prepared statements.
