Statement From A.G. Schneiderman On The State Of The Union Address

NEW YORK – Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman today issued the following statement regarding President Barack Obama’s State of the Union address.

“I commend President Obama for placing inequality front and center this evening and outlining steps to address the most urgent crisis of our time. In the absence of action by Congress, the President did the right thing by unilaterally raising the minimum wage for federal workers, and New York looks forward to more progress in the months ahead. Whether it’s providing affordable and secure health care to more Americans, easing the path to citizenship for immigrants who make our nation great, or providing a real living wage to low-income workers still reeling from the financial crisis, we must work together to ensure the President’s agenda is a success both here and across the nation.”
