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 applaud President Obama’s remarks tonight, which laid out an innovative agenda to serve the American people in the face of Congressional gridlock. The President’s proposals to reform our broken immigration system, make community college more affordable, and cut taxes for middle- and low-income families are motivated by the painful reality that far too many Americans face staggering inequalities in their communities. As we work to improve our society, we must also remain vigilant about the threats, seen and unseen, that we face every single day. There is a pressing need for a comprehensive overhaul of our country’s cybersecurity protocols, which is why I have proposed legislation in New York State that will help companies better safeguard against dangerous data breaches and strengthen protections for consumers. I look forward to working in New York with state and federal officials to promote the President’s agenda of equality, opportunity, and safety for all.”
