Statement from the Partnership for New York City in Support of Governor Cuomo’s Proposal to Give State Control of MTA Board

“Although we have not seen the legislation, New York City’s major employers and business leaders welcome the Governor’s proposal for the state to assume control of the MTA board in order to address immediate transit emergencies and to establish clear accountability for the management, maintenance and financing of what has become an unwieldy and overly bureaucratic authority,” stated Kathryn Wylde, President and CEO of the Partnership for New York City.
