Assembly Majority Provided Emergency Coronavirus Funding

“Recently, I helped pass $40 million in emergency funding to deal with the emerging novel coronavirus (COVID-19) threat because it’s crucial that we invest in the necessary resources we need to combat this evolving, serious public health issue (A.9953). The money will be used to purchase medical equipment and supplies as well as hire and train additional health care workers to ensure New York State is fully prepared in the event this virus spreads. As always, my commitment to keep the people of the 22nd Assembly District safe is my top priority. I’ll continue working to ensure that our state is putting the health and safety of our families first.”
