The New York State Senate passed legislation today that was sponsored by Senator Mark Grisanti (R-I, Buffalo) that extends a program to clean up potentially contaminated sites and put them back to productive use.
New York State Senator Mark Grisanti (R, I-60) today announced the passage of a bill that establishes a green development home tax exemption for local property owners, making an amendment of the state's real property tax law for property located within Erie County.
The legislation is expected to facilitating growth in the green home market by offering an incentive for homes that typically cost more than the average new home.
Senator Grisanti recently visited Lake Shore High School for an Earth Day presentation recognizing his support for the Lake Shore Central School District's Energy Education Initiatives. Senator Grisanti was honored with a certificate of appreciation as well as a framed illustration by Alfonso Butlak IV, a senior at Lake Shore High School, which pays tribute to the senator's support of the district. The district has saved more than $180,000 through the Energy Education Program.
