Lanza, Rose, Cusick Help Secure Return of Indoor Dining in NYC


STATEN ISLAND – Congressman Max Rose, State Senator Andrew Lanza, and Assembly Member Michael Cusick, who have been leading bipartisan efforts to safely reopen indoor dining in New York City, issued the following joint statement on Governor Andrew Cuomo’s announcement that indoor dining will be allowed in New York City in a reduced capacity:
“We appreciate Governor Cuomo hearing our calls and working with us to bring back New York City indoor dining,” Rose, Lanza and Cusick said. “Restaurants have been holding on for dear life and need to know there’s a light at the end of the tunnel. But this is just one step in a long journey. We need to make sure they get the support and guidance they need to safely reopen and we won’t stop fighting to make sure they get much needed and deserved relief.”
Rose, who has been a leading advocate for safely opening indoor dining at reduced capacity, has been working closely with State Senator Andrew Lanza, Assembly Member Michael Cusick and local restaurant owners in advocating to the Governor and Mayor the return of indoor dining. Last month, Rose and Lanza called for the Governor to safely reopening restaurants for indoor dining and recently penned a column in the New York Daily News saying, “when it comes to indoor dining, New York is failing and falling behind.”
