TWU's Legislative Conference Features Discussion with Sen. Schumer

Local 100's leadership was part of the TWU of America's Political and Legislative COPE Conference in Washington this week, where they met with the Senate's most powerful Democrat, NY's Chuck Schumer. In December, Schumer guided the $305 billion federal transportation bill through the legislature. It included more than $16 billion for bridges, highways and transit systems around the New York State. Schumer said the bill prevented drastic cuts that would have reduced investments in state infrastructure.
