New York State Senator Martin Malave Dilan, Chair of the Senate Transportation Committee, speaks about the committee's accomplishments in 2009 -- including passage of Leandra's Law -- and priorities for 2010.
“Keeping services in tact must remain a priority for the MTA during this process. While I am fully aware of the financial strain the State, City and authority faces, the MTA must weigh every option to maintain services, especially services as vital as the reduced fare for school children program.”
