The bill is backed by Mayor Giuliani, and is unopposed by any major interest group. Moreover, the prospects for an early NY State budget agreement this spring are strong. Thus, this is the bill's best chance ever: there seems to be no reason that it shouldn't pass this session. But it can be hard to trust in the arcane ways of Albany, so we urge the bill's sponsors and their staffs to aggressively seek and maintain momentum for the bill whenever possible.
The lives of NYC children, elderly and other citizens are at stake.
The Slow Speed bill must pass in 1998.
