WASHINGTON: Yesterday, Congresswoman Carolyn B. Maloney (Manhattan, Queens), Congressman Josè E. Serrano (Bronx), Congressman Anthony Weiner (Brooklyn, Queens) and Congressman Michael McNulty (Albany) introduced legislation to improve the federal government's ability to respond to major disasters and terrorist attacks.

Washington, D.C.-- Today, Congresswoman Carolyn B. Maloney (D-NY), along with Representatives Nita Lowey (D-NY), Lynn Woolsey (D-CA), and Joseph Crowley (D-NY) announced the findings of a report from a UK delegation sent to China to investigate the U.N. Population Fund's (UNFPA) work in China last April. They also announced nearly 50 bipartisan Members of Congress have signed a letter demanding a meeting with President Bush to discuss the status of funding for UNFPA.
President Bush is withholding lifesaving funds from the U.N.

Maloney (D-NY) expressed guarded approval for the New York City Economic Development Corporation's (EDC) decision to sell 2 Columbus Circle to the American Craft Museum and expressed the hope that changes to the facade would be minimal in a letter to the American Craft Museum.
Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney organized a letter signed by twenty-eight members of the New York delegation in the House asking Chairman Harold Rogers and Ranking Member Martin Olav Sabo of the Appropriations Subcommittee on Transportation to provide federal funding for the Second Avenue Subway in the FY2003 transportation appropriations bill. This unprecedented support for the Second Avenue Subway comes from every member of the New York delegation other than three Appropriations Committee members who generally do not join requests for specific appropriations.
