Cuomo said federal action must be resolved.
“What the president did made it impossible for the state to do it,” he said. “The president, by his decree, makes us pay 25% of unemployment insurance, which could cost us $ 4 billion. It’s just an impossibility. None of this is really on the federal side. This is going to have to be resolved. I’m not sure if the president sincerely thinks the decree is a resolution or it’s just a tactic in the negotiation, but it’s irreconcilable for the state, and I guess it’s just a chapter from Washington’s COVID Mismanagement Book. ”
Cuomo said the state health department is reviewing the “second supplemental plan” for the reopening of schools filed by the city’s education department and will have an update on its. status Monday.
