U.S. Senators Charles E. Schumer, Kirsten Gillibrand, and U.S. Representatives Nita Lowey and Sean Patrick Maloney today announced nearly $3.8 million in federal funds to elevate four locations along interstate 87 in the towns of Tuxedo and Ramapo in Orange and Rockland Counties to minimize the risk of future flooding. Project sites are between mile posts 39.77 and 39.53, between mile posts 37.92 and 37.76, between mile posts 32.2 and 32.1, and between mile posts 30.68 and 31.1. This grant, which is being awarded as part of the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP) will offset 75% of the total project costs. Severe and persistent rainfall last year led to severe flooding of the Ramapo River, which led to the underwater submersion of portions of Interstate 87 in Tuxedo and Ramapo for several days. The $3,765,503.00 grant will allow construction to start on the much needed infrastructure project in Orange and Rockland Counties.

Increasing the minimum wage to $10.10 would raise the living wage for nearly 1 million hardworking New Yorkers and their families, including tens of thousands of women who are twice as likely to earn the minimum wage.
