Griffo Wants Power for Jobs Program Made Permanent

Griffo Calls for Immediate Action on Power for Jobs

 

(Albany ) Senator Joseph A. Griffo (R-IP-C, Rome) today called for immediate action to extend New York’s Power for Jobs program and also called for a June deadline for action to make the program permanent.

As the Ranking Minority Member of the Senate Energy and Telecommunications Committee, Griffo voted in committee yesterday and on the Senate floor today for Senate Bill 7573-A, which  would make Power for Jobs permanent, instead of requiring legislative action each year to keep the program running. S.7573-A now goes to the Assembly for their consideration before it can come to the Governor for his approval.
