“Today, Mayor de Blasio took a bold step forward for the people of this City by signing the amended ‘paid sick leave’ legislation into law. This new law will provide all Bronxites, and in fact all New Yorkers, the protection they need should they or a loved one fall ill, and I’m proud to support it. I commend the mayor, City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito, my Manhattan colleague Borough President Gale Brewer, the City Council and those advocates who worked tirelessly to see this legislation become a reality,” said Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr.
