New York Governor Kathy Hochul announced what she calls record investments in public safety.

She says the $772-million-dollar initiative is part of her proposed state budget.

It includes money for gun violence prevention and prosecution and defense funding.

That includes giving public defenders a pay increase.

“Whether it’s the day-to-day gun violence, or a place like my hometown of Buffalo, where, ironically, on Mother’s Day, will be the one-year-anniversary of the mass shooting in a neighborhood grocery store not far from where I live, so we’re investing $70 for communities to deal with the aftermath of gun violence — to help lift them up, to give them a purpose, help deal with problems that are specific to their neighborhoods,” said Gov. Kathy Hochul (D) New York.

A 19-year-old white man is serving a life sentencing for murdering 10 people in that grocery store shooting last year. He admits his intention was to kill black people.
