Statement From A.G. Schneiderman On Independence Day

NEW YORK – Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman today released the following statement in honor of Independence Day:

“Today we join together to commemorate the tireless hope and wisdom of those individuals who gave rise to this great nation. Our nation was built on the fundamentally American value that there should be one set of rules for everyone, no matter how rich or powerful. Our task as a nation has been to make that vision closer to reality, and I am committed to using every tool in my office’s disposal to fight for equality for every New Yorker.  

“Today we also honor the men and woman who have risked everything and continue to sacrifice for our freedom and safety. Let us celebrate our past achievements and recommit to improving our country with each generation, in pursuit of greater justice and equality.

“I wish every New Yorker, and all Americans, a memorable and joyous 4th of July.”
