(New York, NY-AP) — U.S. Senator Chuck Schumer of New York is discussing how the partial government shutdown is impacting the state. Among the agencies affected are the MTA, TSA workers at area airports, IRS employees and workers with the food stamp program.
Democrat Schumer spoke at a breakfast this morning held by the Association for a Better New York, where he discussed the ongoing budget negotiations. He said giving in to demands over funding for a border wall would be encouraging the president’s worst instincts.
