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.
