NY governor calls Trump benefits executive order 'laughable'

"But even to the extent that he's executed executive orders, they aren't going to meet the demand". "While open questions about this announcement are resolved, please continue to certify weekly to ensure you receive your Unemployment Insurance or Pandemic Unemployment Assistance benefits".

The orders came as the Trump administration and congressional Republicans remained at an impasse with Democrats on the next round of stimulus spending.

Cuomo, for his part, was relying on Congress and the White House to provide billions of dollars in aid to NY to avert a financial crisis in the state. "Take it from someone who understands the power of executive orders and has often considered an executive order when he can't get legislation".

Trump also approved other memoranda and an executive order to defer student loans, preserve a federal moratorium on evictions, and defer payment of the payroll tax that funds Medicare and Social Security benefits.

Russian Federation develops world's 1st covid-19 vaccine
The World Health Organization said all vaccine candidates should go through full stages of testing before being rolled out. Anthony Fauci has also questioned the the fast track approach of the Russian Federation authorities.

"The concept of saying to states that you pay 25% of the unemployment insurance is just laughable", Cuomo said. Of the 65,812 test results reported to New York State yesterday, 515, or 0.78 percent, were positive, marking the lowest single-day positive rate in New York since the pandemic started in March. "Really incredible achievement by New Yorkers". There were 548 people hospitalized for coronavirus, with 131 receiving intensive care, according to Cuomo.

"It's great news", the governor said.

State police and the state liquor authority visited 2,294 bars and restaurants downstate, and issued 60 tickets for violations of COVID-19 safety precaution rules.

Queens had the most violations out of any borough - 16. "We need the NYPD to step up and help in New York City, and we need local government across the board to also be doing their job".
