On Saturday, April 6, 2016, Assemblyman Ron Kim (Chair, Task Force on New Americans) joined Assemblyman Jim Brennan (Chair, Corporations, Authorities, and Commissions Committee) and Assemblyman Robert Rodriguez (Chair, Subcommittee on Infrastructure) in requesting a long-term solution to the outdated transportation infrastructure in Downtown Flushing.
Assemblyman Kim will join his colleagues in launching a series of roundtable and oversight hearings, starting April 30, 2016 at the Queens Library, to address the congestion, overcrowding, and unsafe conditions in Downtown Flushing.
“For more than ten years, my predecessors in local government and I have asked the Metropolitan Transportation Authority to take a serious look at improving the conditions of Downtown Flushing,” stated Assemblyman Ron Kim. “Yet, the MTA continues to neglect this growing community, treating us like second-class citizens. Flushing is one of the most congested places in America and produces more jobs than any other neighborhood in New York City. All we are asking for is our fair share of investment to improve the transportation infrastructure.”
