New York Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie released the following statement: “The appropriation we passed will help save the lives of New Yorkers. While the vast majority of people who contract the novel coronavirus do not become seriously ill, we have seen how quickly the disease can spread and just how deadly it can be. This funding will purchase lifesaving equipment and supplies, and ensure health care workers have the training they need to deal with this health crisis. It’s important to act expeditiously so New Yorkers can know their government is doing everything it can to combat this potential health crisis. Ensuring we are prepared and have the necessary resources will allow us to do just that.”
