Statement From Senate President Pro Tempore Malcolm A. Smith

“Today, on the 9th Anniversary of the crash of American Airlines Flight 587 in Belle Harbor, Queens, we remember the 265 victims who tragically lost their lives. It’s important that we honor them every year with a memorial service so that future generations will know the impact that this tragedy had on all New Yorkers. My heart goes out to the families of the victims as they continue to deal with the loss of their loved ones. I would also like to encourage all children, spouses and financial dependents of individuals killed on the flight to take advantage of the Flight 587 Memorial Scholarship. This program will help defray the cost of attending college in New York State.”
