Yesterday, Mayor Bloomberg visited Washington DC joined by Senator Charles Schumer and Senator Kirsten Gillibrand to ask for fiscal help from the federal government for Hurricane Sandy relief efforts.
In New York City, the public and private losses caused by Hurricane Sandy, which were not covered by private insurance come to $15.2 billion.  New York City’s recovery is vital to America’s continued economic recovery and growth.
Read the Mayor’s remarks delivered yesterday at the U.S Capitol Building at http://on.nyc.gov/UdLnVc.

Highlight from the remarks: "We haven’t waited for the help that we hope to get from Washington to come, but given the scale and the impact of the storm, Federal assistance is clearly warranted."

Code Red: Mayor Bloomberg’s proposed large soda ban becomes law in New York

  • nine members of New York’s Board of Health voted to approve the ban on sales of sodas over 16 ounces. (They aren’t cola nuts.)
  • one member of the board abstained out of concern for the financial implications of the ban. (He wasn’t a Fanta the ban.) source
