The New York Times is also reporting that the state will have NO travel restrictions next year.
The NYT notes that the New York City government is moving ahead with a plan to phase out all federal and state restrictions on the city’s air travel and will be working with airlines and airlines’ allies to ensure that passengers can continue to fly without being subject to additional restrictions.
This is a great news for travelers in New York, who will no longer have to worry about getting stuck on an airplane and having to pay the full fare to enter New York.
As the NYT notes, New York is already the largest city in the US to ban all non-essential travel and it’s still unclear when the state’s plan will take effect.
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo (D) said that “this is not a question of if, but when.”
The governor has already indicated that he will not implement the travel restrictions on his own and that the only way for him to do that is through a federal program, which he has repeatedly said he does not want to do.
Cuomo is reportedly considering the idea of creating a “state-run travel agency” that would run the travel programs.
“If we can work with the federal government to create a system that allows travelers to travel freely without having to worry whether they’ll be subject to a travel restriction, then I would welcome that,” Cuomo told CNN’s Anderson Cooper in a recent interview.
The plan could put a significant strain on airlines, which are already seeing a shortage of pilots and other workers due to a nationwide shortage of available pilots.
It will also force airlines to compete with each other to hire more pilots and make sure that they’re able to offer the best experience to their customers.
In order to make sure New York does not have any restrictions, Cuomo is already planning to introduce legislation that would exempt some business travelers from having to get a visa to travel.
The legislation would also exempt people who work in New Mexico, Washington, DC, and Florida from having a visa requirement.
A new law passed in New Jersey would make it illegal for anyone to purchase any firearm anywhere in the state.
The law, which was passed on Wednesday, was aimed at ensuring that gun owners have an easy way to get guns into the state from other states.
On Thursday, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie (R) signed a bill that will allow people to carry concealed handguns in public for the first time.
At the time of writing, the New Jersey Senate had passed the legislation, but a companion bill has been introduced in the House.
Meanwhile, the NYC Mayor, Bill de Blasio, is also pushing for a similar law to take effect on Jan. 1, 2020.
This will likely be the first year in which the city will have a full ban on all nonessential travel for all nonresidents.
