(NEW YORK) - George Miranda, President of Teamsters Joint Council 16, the union that represents workers in the horse-drawn carriage industry, had the following statement on the horse carriage legislation before the City Council:

"The Teamsters' first priority is always our members and their livelihoods. With the legislation now finalized, our members are not confident that it provides a viable future for their industry. We cannot support the horse carriage bill currently before the City Council."
