“Following the House of Representatives’ swift vote yesterday to pass TRIA, the Senate took the right step today by passing this important piece of legislation. I want to thank Senator Schumer, Senator Gillibrand and other members of the Senate for voting for a measure that will help New York City and the country’s economy continue to grow. We now urge President Obama to sign the legislation into law as soon as possible.”
