"During our many years in the City Council, Mayor Bill de Blasio and I worked together tirelessly to restore voucher funding every year. I am pleased that today's executive budget reflects a partial restoration and a commitment by the Mayor to this important program.  I am confident that Council members David Greenfield and Stephen Levin under the leadership of Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito will work together with the Mayor to ensure that families continue to receive uninterrupted child care vouchers."
