NEW YORK, NY- Today, New York State Senate Co-Leader Jeff Klein, Senate Labor Committee Chairwoman Diane Savino, and Assemblyman Steven Otis celebrated the signing of a sweeping new child labor law that promises to end widespread exploitation of underage models in New York’s fashion industry.

RITCHIE UNVEILS PLANS FOR ST. LAWRENCE COUNTY WINE TRAIL

Legislation To Spotlight Lisbon, Black Lake And Winthrop Wineries

State Senator Patty Ritchie has announced plans to introduce legislation in January to establish a St. Lawrence County Wine Trail to help put local winemakers and vineyards on the map, boost local businesses and create jobs in the North Country.

“St. Lawrence County can now proudly say that it has three outstanding local wine producers in Lisbon, Black Lake and Winthrop,” said Senator Ritchie. “Unfortunately, a lot of people have yet to discover River Myst, Bella Brooke and High Peaks wineries.
