Malliotakis Term in Review: 7,496 Cases Closed, over $72M Returned to NY-11

WASHINGTON, DC – Congresswoman Nicole Malliotakis (NY-11) on October 19 released the following statement and attached report card recapping her first term in office representing New York’s 11th Congressional District:

“During my first term in Congress, my office has helped thousands of constituents caught up in red tape and bureaucracy expedite hundreds of passports, make the honorable step of becoming legal U.S. citizens, and obtain over $36 million in money owed to them from the federal government. Not only this, but we’ve been able to deliver over $36 million to local organizations that include the NYPD for new forensic and protective equipment, our local hospitals to finish the construction of new wings, the Staten Island Ferry to modernize our fleet and keep our ferries running on time, and the U.S. Coast Guard Sector New York so it can upgrade housing for our Coasties. To put this into perspective, our office has been able to bring home four times as many federal dollars as my predecessor which directly benefits the hardworking men and women of Staten Island and Southern Brooklyn. My first term in Congress has been nothing short of productive and I’m looking forward to building on these successes in a Republican-led Congress come January.”

Among her most recent initiatives, Congresswoman Nicole Malliotakis (NY-11) on October 21 joined Staten Island Borough President Vito Fossella, New York State Senator Andrew Lanza, and New York City Council Minority Leader Joe Borelli to call on Governor Kathy Hochul to change New York’s Green Light Law to allow federal access to Department of Motor Vehicle (DMV) records to combat the recent spike in car thefts conducted by transnational criminal organizations in New York City.

In Malliotakis’ first term her office was responsible for:

7,496 constituent cases resolved; 76,079 constituent responses sent; 862 passports issued; 398 visas & green cards issued; 78 new U.S. citizens;

Secured appropriations, federal grants, and misc. funding for: Richmond University Medical Center, College of Staten Island, Staten Island University Hospital, New York City Police Department, U.S. Coast Guard Sector New York, Staten Island Ferry, Central Family Life Center, YouthBuild, NYC Health + Hospital/Coney Island, St. George’s Theatre, Sephardic Community Youth Center.

Total amount of money returned to constituents: $72,626,656

Malliotaki’s staffers also helped 94 businesses secure $32,085,573 from the Small Business Administration, assisted more than 322 constituents in securing $1,642,331 in unemployment assistance from the Department of Labor, and assisted more than 305 constituents in securing $1,462,983 from federal tax refunds and stimulus checks from the Department of Treasury.

The record includes Social Security Administration funding of $1,006,214, Office of Personnel Management funding of $257,983, and Appropriations, Federal Grants, and Misc. Funds totalling $36,171,572

On the legislative front Malliotakis participated in: 35 bills introduced, 309 bills cosponsored, 41 bills cosponsored passed House, 15 bills cosponsored signed into law.

She introduced legislation to deter local governments from defunding their police departments, a resolution condemning efforts to defund, dismantle, or abolish the police, legislation to hold states with lax bail laws accountable and require that bail laws provide judges with discretion, legislation requiring the Biden Administration to disclose criminal histories of those who enter our country illegally, bipartisan legislation that would audit the MTA and prohibit USDOT from implementing congestion pricing until certain criteria are met, legislation to hold NYCHA accountable & provide transparency to ensure residents can live in dignity, and language securing catch-up payments for 9/11 widows and children through the USVSST (passed House on September 30, 2022).

The Congresswoman voted to pass legislation to expand health care services to veterans exposed to toxic substances during military service and two amendments to redirect funding from the Commission that recommended the closure of NYC’s VA hospitals – she also cosponsored legislation requiring the VA to provide service dogs to veterans with PTSD (signed into law on August 25, 2021).
