“This package of tax breaks will send critical tax relief to our region, helping not only with our wallets, but with jobs and the economy, and I was proud to vote for it,” Meng said. “Also, by making these tax breaks permanent, residents and small business owners in the borough will be better able to plan for the future. They will have certainty about the tax breaks for which they qualify.”
“Working as a child model or actor can be an incredible opportunity, and lead to success for a lifetime,” said Meng. “However, the work can come with much risk. That’s why we need a federal law that would finally ensure that children in acting and modeling are adequately protected.”
“The FAA has failed the residents of Queens. It continues to ignore the borough by making no real attempt to decrease the excessive aircraft noise over the area. I believe that the Environmental Protection Agency is better suited to handle the problem, and this bill is the best way for the agency to take control of it.”
“It’s been a long road, but a school holiday for Lunar New Year will finally be a reality in New York City. I’m proud to have led the charge."
