Statement from Mayor de Blasio on State Assembly Passage of Design-Build Authority for NYCHA

March 13, 2018

"Speaker Heastie and the State Assembly have the backs of NYCHA tenants. Today, they passed a bill giving NYCHA full design-build authority that will speed up critical repairs by more than a year. The rest of Albany needs to follow the Assembly's lead: stop playing games and promoting gimmicks. Deliver the key investments and reforms NYCHA tenants are waiting for."
