Coughlin on Waterfront Commission

Assembly Speaker Craig Coughlin (D-Middlesex) released the following statement on the appellate court decision upholding the law abolishing the Waterfront Commission of New York Harbor:

“The court decision reaffirms the one thing we have known all along: It is time and it is necessary to move forward, making way for more efficient operations at the port.  The companies along the Waterfront are a part of one of the lifeblood industries of our state’s economy. Their ability to work, create jobs and do business aids in our long-term successful growth in these industries and will open up opportunities for people to get back to work.”
