Local Issues

Nothing is more important to Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney than the quality of life in her district. She is proud of the work she has done to improve infrastructure, preserve historic neighborhoods, fight for better zoning and create schools in her district. Whether working to create an academically rigorous public high school on the Upper East Side, seeking to restore the crumbling Queens seawall or fighting for a full build Second Avenue Subway, her first priority has always been to make her district a better place to live.

This update, as always, will continue to focus on news updates and important information related to the COVID-19 crisis, but I would be remiss to not address the movement for Black lives that is currently sweeping our nation. I am deeply inspired by the people all across our country who are protesting and marching to condemn police violence, demand justice, and declare unequivocally that Black Lives Matter. As a Member of Congress, I know that we must put actions behind our words that decry police brutality, racial profiling, and the excessive use of force. This page on my website has a growing list of the various legislative proposals I am supporting to do just that. Tomorrow evening at 6pm, I will holding a telephone townhall with special guests Dr. Michael Niederman, pulmonologist at Weill Cornell; Congressman Bobby Scott, Chairman of the Committee on Education and Labor; and Nicole Miglior of the Office of the Deputy Mayor for Strategic Policy Initiatives and Democracy NYC. You can sign up to participate here.

For years, FDA’s discriminatory restrictions have prevented people from safely donating their blood and perpetuated harmful stigma against gay and bisexual men across the United States. The coronavirus crisis brought into focus the dangers of this shortsighted policy. On Monday, I joined with my colleagues to introduce a resolution underscoring the need for policies governing blood and blood product donation that are grounded in science and based on individual risk assessments so all those who can safely donate are able to do so.

On Thursday, inspired by my work with the NYC fashion industry to produce personal protective equipment (PPE) for front line workers, I announced two new initiatives to promote American manufacturing, save jobs here at home, and save lives. First, a Government Accountability Office (GAO) study on how to stabilize the supply chain of PPE, and second, my plan to introduce legislation requiring a percentage of the strategic national stockpile of PPE be made in the United States.
