Senator Mike Nozzolio Honored with "Friend of Trucking" award by the New York State Motor Truck Association

Senator Mike Nozzolio recently met with members of the New York State Motor Truck Association during their recent visit to the State Capitol and was honored to receive the “Friend of Trucking" award from the Association for his strong and unwavering support of the trucking industry. Senator Nozzolio has long recognized the significant role that the trucking industry plays in the economic viability of our region and to New York State.  Trucks carry everything from heavy equipment to cars, agriculture products and produce, to the supplies that we need to operate our manufacturing companies and small businesses.  Without trucks, the price of goods and services in New York State would skyrocket.
