New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said he spoke to President Trump today about the state’s funding issues and the administration agreed to expedite $3.9 billion in funding to the state for the Metropolitan Transit Association.

“We spoke about the state funding issues with Donald Trump. He heard me out. I’ve also asked him to expedite certain payments and he’s expediting $3.9 billion payment to the MTA, which is a very large transportation agency in the state,” the governor said.
Cuomo said that Trump sent the first installment today.

He added that the MTA “desperately needs funding because the ridership is way down” on account of people staying home. CNN
