Mike Brings Home the Bacon

Heard about the massive omnibus spending bill that passed in DC last week? Well, Maybe not, but Congressman Mike McMahon (D- Staten Island) has secured $3.5 Million in federal funds to combat terrorism in New York City.

The funds will go to a city-wide terrorism emergency task force to be stationed at the Fort Hamilton base just over the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge in Brooklyn.
"Having a task force devoted only to the City is a no-brainer," McMahon said. "Even though it has been over eight years since 9/11, concern of another terrorist attack still lingers in the back of every New Yorker’s mind."

The National Guard has been trying to secure this money for seven years. It's about time.
