Statement from Alphonso David, Counsel to the Governor
"Today, pursuant to its original terms, Executive Order 180 declaring a state disaster emergency for NYCHA is being renewed. The federal government has conducted a two-year investigation of New York City and its management of the housing authority, which is expected to be resolved shortly. Depending on the conclusion of that investigation, the City may face significant financial penalties and have new management reforms applied to the system. We will conform our Executive Order to the findings of the federal investigation and accommodate any mandated management changes or financial liabilities New York City may face."
