Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC – Congresswoman Carolyn B. Maloney (NY-12), who, with Congressman José E. Serrano (NY-15) and 10 other members of the New York Delegation on a letter to Congressional leadership in the House and Senate calling for $35M in funding to reimburse the people of New York for costs incurred in protecting President-elect Trump and his family, issued the following statement after the release of the Continuing Resolution which only includes $7M of funding dedicated to this issue:

“I am extremely disappointed that the Continuing Resolution to fund the federal government does not fully reimburse the people of New York for the unprecedented security costs incurred to keep the President-elect and his family safe between the election and his inauguration. While I have no doubt that the NYPD will continue to do its part to secure the area around Trump Tower and meet the Secret Service’s high standard,  our great city shouldn't have to foot the bill for these extraordinary security measures all by ourselves. That is why my colleagues and I made this request a priority item in the closing days of this Congress. We will continue to push for the full $35 million requested by New York City and the President.”
