OVERRIDDEN: City Council reverses Mayor Adams’ veto of housing voucher expansion bills


The City Council on Thursday voted to override Mayor Eric Adams’ veto of several bills aimed at broadening access to rental assistance vouchers, in what has become one of the fiercest battles at City Hall. 

With a 42 to 8 vote margin, the council pushed through the four bill package over the mayor’s formal rejection of the measures. Mayor Adams vetoed all four pieces of legislation last month after the council passed each one by a 41 to 7 majority in late May.
