Albany, NY - “The State Senate governing coalition must allow a vote on Mayor de Blasio’s plan for a reliable and adequate funding stream to provide Universal Pre-K in New York City. The Mayor won election on this proposal with the largest margin for a newly-elected mayor since the Consolidation of New York City in 1898. It would be an affront to the voters of New York City if the Senate does not bring the Mayor’s proposal to the floor.”
