Albany, N.Y., April 30–State Senator George Winner (R-C-I, Elmira) warned today that continued inaction on the 2010-2011 state budget could lead to thousands of upstate job losses, including many in the Southern Tier, by the elimination of the Empire Zone economic development program set to take place 60 days from now.

Similar concerns are also being expressed by many upstate employers on the fate of the state’s low-cost economic development power programs, which are set to expire in mid-May.

Measure Favored By Remington Arms Signed Into Law

ALBANY, 04/29/10 – State Senator James L. Seward (R/C/I- Oneonta) today announced legislation that clears the way for weapon manufacturers, including Remington Arms, to produce and repair firearm silencers for law enforcement and military agencies has been signed into law.

“The legislation opens the door to an exciting new job front for Remington Arms,” said Senator Seward.  “By erasing a legal barrier, Herkimer County’s number one employer can now set its sights on a new segment of the firearm industry.”

Senate bill 2721, cosponsored by Senator Seward, will allow properly licensed weapon companies like Remington to manufacture and repair firearm silencers for governmental/military use only.
