Mayor De Blasio Delivers Annual ‘State Of The City’ Address

Richard B. Levine  Newscom

Some announcements came earlier this week, like guaranteed health care for all New Yorkers and mandated paid personal time off for all workers.

The mandate would have to be passed by the City Council, a process that could take several months. And the city's strict campaign finance laws do not allow for spending campaign cash on legal woes.

The plan won an endorsement from the Real Estate Board of NY, whose membership does not tend to include property owners on the "worst landlords" list.

"There has to be a way to pay for it, and if you are a public servant, there's just no way to handle it".

Secure Choice auto-IRA programs like the one envisioned in New York City use the most effective savings method-payroll deduction-to help workers build a retirement nest egg, while states provide expertise and savings mechanisms in the form of pooled investment vehicles. As the New York Post reported, the bill was introduced by Council Member Ben Kallos, who represents parts of Manhattan, but also now chairs the Council's Land Use Subcommittee on Planning Dispositions and Concessions, which has oversight over the sale or lease of city-owned land to developers.

The mayor said the plan will serve the 600,000 New Yorkers without insurance by strengthening New York City's public health insurance option, MetroPlus, and guaranteeing anyone ineligible for insurance, including undocumented New Yorkers. "What we need now is to hold the administration to account for these bold promises and ensure that they deliver for New Yorkers", he said in a statement, adding, "What's also clear is that we need to continue a push to make sure that people and issues are not left behind".

Kevin Dugan, government affairs director for the New York State Restaurant Association, called the proposal "very concerning" to the restaurant industry. In Fall 2020, District 12 (Central Bronx) and District 29 (Cambria Heights, Hollis, Laurelton, Queens Village, Springfield Gardens, St. Albans) will get 3-K for All.
