April 3, 2020

JOINT STATEMENT FROM REPS. REED, STEFANIK;STATE SENATORS OMARA, ORTT, BORRELLO, JACOBS, HELMING, FUNKE, AKSHAR AND STATE ASSEMBLYMAN PALMESANO, FRIEND, GOODELL AND ASSEMBLYWOMAN BYRNES:

“We have been watching the situation in New York City and we have an increase in cases, hospitalizations and deaths in other parts of New York,” Taking our ventilators by force leaves our people without protection and our hospitals unable to save lives today or respond to a coming surge. We stand together opposing the Governor’s very dangerous and reckless action. He is leaving our communities in a terrible position which will cost lives.”
