For over two centuries, Montauk Point Lighthouse has served as one of the most recognizable symbols in our region, evoking a sense of community among Long Islanders, and attracting visitors from across the United States and foreign nations. This critical project is an investment in the future of not only Montauk Point Lighthouse, but Long Island as a whole. The landmark currently sits less than 100 feet from the receding edge of the bluff and its deteriorating stonework revetment is the only thing left protecting the lighthouse from being lost to the ocean due to erosion. This project will bolster the shoreline and provide safety reinforcements, including an 840-foot revetment with a 73-year level of protection for the lighthouse, that will ensure Montauk Point Lighthouse will continue to shine for generations to come.

The continued violence against New York’s incredible AAPI community is disgusting, wholly un-American and must be condemned and combatted at every turn. Every American deserves freedom, economic opportunity, and safety without fear of the hatred that has become a daily occurrence on New York streets. This bipartisan legislation takes real concrete steps to combat this hate by empowering state and local governments to improve reporting and strengthen the flow of information from local law enforcement agencies. We must bring the perpetrators of these disgusting crimes to justice, and this legislation helps give us the tools to do so.
