Location: Washington, DC

Today, Reps. Steve Israel (D-Huntington), Peter King (R-Seaford) and Tim Bishop (D-Southampton) issued the following statement:

"Governor Cuomo deserves credit for finalizing an agreement that will avoid a strike, and we have worked with him and both parties over the past months to help facilitate this outcome. When negotiations collapsed, and both sides turned to Washington, we made it clear that the ultimate solution rested at the bargaining table. Since then, we have worked on a bipartisan basis with the Governor and both parties to keep negotiations going, and today's outcome is exactly what we envisioned."
