“Across the country, cities have abandoned public housing, but we refused to do that," Bloomberg said in a statement. "We continued to invest and support our public housing system, and these reforms will help us continue to improve it — in spite of a decade cutbacks by Congress."

NYCHA is expected to go forward with layoffs, a hiring freeze and the closure of community centers as well as youth and senior programs because of the federal sequester. Almost 100,000 residents who receive reduced rent through a federal program will see their rent increase by up to $72 a month.

Democratic mayoral candidate Bill Thompson attacked NYCHA in a statement today:

To punish low-income New Yorkers, most of whom are people of color, for NYCHA’s gross mismanagement, is unjust and unacceptable. Our communities deserve better. I demand that Mayor Bloomberg fire NYCHA Commissioner Rhea. Commissioner Rhea completely failed to prepare for federal funding cuts that have been expected for a long time and continues to oversee NYCHA’s perpetual deficits. The Mayor must implement a real plan that avoids painful rent increases that fixed-income families can’t afford and our communities should not tolerate. When I’m Mayor, I will overhaul the incompetent governing structure of NYCHA and replace it with professionals, NYCHA residents, and real mayoral accountability for the performance of NYCHA.

Assemblyman On Minimum Wage Hike Bill: 'A Nice Little Press Release' http://www.gothamgazette.com/index.php/the-eye-opener/entry/state/2013/03/05/assembly-debates-minimum-wage-hike- http://www.gothamgazette.com/index.php/the-eye-opener/entry/state/2013/03/05/assembly-debates-minimum-wage-hike- Assembly Republicans are expressing their dissaproval with Speaker Sheldon Silver's legislation that will increase the minimum wage to $9 an hour at a hearing this afternoon.

Assemblyman Al Graf just got finished noting that this specific bill has no sponsor in the Senate and that it is basically a one-house bill. "All this amounts to is a nice little press release," Graf said. Democratic Keith Wright is the bill's sponsor in the Assembly.

Silver decided to bring the wage increase to a vote today as negotiations over a minimum wage increase continue between the Senate, Governor and Assembly.

Senate Republicans have acknowledged an increase is likely but they want to pair it with tax cuts.

Meanwhile, the breakaway Independent Senate Democrats support a wage hike as well.

They issued a press release moments ago saying, "Senator Klein strongly supports a minimum wage increase and expects to see an increase passed as part of this year's budget package."
