Seward Plows Under Farm-Threatening Labor Bill

ALBANY, 04/20/10 -- Senator James L. Seward (R/C/I-Oneonta) today announced that the Senate Agriculture Committee defeated senate bill 2247b, also known as the Farm Worker Fair Labor Practice Act.

“Defeating the so called, farm worker labor bill is a clear victory for our upstate farmers, farm workers and the agriculture industry,” said Senator Seward.  “The bill, supported mainly by New York City politicians, would have forced farms to close, while driving up costs for the few survivors.”

State must help its universities

The reforms are in Gov. David A. Paterson’s executive budget bill. The Senate chose to include these reforms in its budget resolution, thanks to a strong push by State Sen. William T. Stachowski, D-Lake View, and Senate Democratic Conference Leader John Sampson of Brooklyn, with support from the Western New York delegation. But the Assembly’s budget resolution cut out these same reforms and, worse, both chambers did not restore funding for public universities.

Release State Funds - Get Construction Jobs Moving

ONEONTA, 04/08/10 – State Senator James L. Seward (R/C/I-Oneonta) says the late state budget is now jeopardizing thousands of jobs and putting public safety at risk.

“The lack of urgency shown by some in Albany to set to work on a state budget is now sending individuals to the unemployment line,” said Senator Seward.  “We need to start public conference committees immediately and complete a state budget to avoid a total state shut down.”

Along with pressing for ramped up budget work, Senator Seward is also calling on the governor to reverse his recent decision to suspend payments for ongoing state-funded capital construction projects until a new state budget is in place.

Griffo Says Broadband Cuts Hurt Upstate Jobs

(Albany) - State Sen. Joseph A. Griffo (R-IP-C, Rome) today reacted with alarm to Albany’s plan to renege on a commitment for matching funds for sorely needed high-speed Internet access to North Country homes and businesses.

Senate and Assembly Democrats stripped $100 million in funding from the state budget for broadband matching grants, including at least $2 million that, together with federal stimulus funding, was planned for projects in rural St. Lawrence County, according to a story in today’s Journal News.

“Democrats called their plan a ‘roadmap,’ but cutting funds for programs that are tied to job growth and economic revitalization can only lead to a dead end for North Country jobs and businesses,” Griffo said.
