The desperate row over lockdown orders in New York continues today as government officials in Albany are threatening to pull school and neighborhood(s) funding from hot-bed areas of the Coronavirus. According to Governor Andrew Cuomo, schools and neighborhood’s that are refusing to close down and concede to orders —- will not receive any of their funding which shockingly includes New York City itself in the threat.
The hardest hit areas include: New York City, Orange County, Rockland County, the Town of Ramapo and the Village of Spring Valley.
“I don’t like to [withhold funding] — budgets are tough all across the board,” he said during a press conference. “I don’t know how else to actually do the enforcement they need to do. Hopefully that will motivate them, because nothing else I have done has motivated them.”
