Statement from Senator Michael Gianaris

LONG ISLAND CITY, N.Y. – Senate Deputy Leader Michael Gianaris issued the following statement.

“Today’s behavior by Amazon shows why they would have been a bad partner for New York in any event. Rather than seriously engage with the community they proposed to profoundly change, Amazon continued its effort to shakedown governments to get its way. It is time for a national dialogue about the perils of these types of corporate subsidies.”
