LEGISLATIVE RESOLUTION commemorating the 40th Anniversary of the New
York State Tug Hill Commission to be celebrated May 30, 2013

WHEREAS, Organizations which serve the interest of the people of this
Empire State merit the commendation of this Legislative Body; and
WHEREAS, This Legislative Body is justly proud to commemorate the 40th
Anniversary of the New York State Tug Hill Commission, to be celebrated
at the Beeches in Rome, New York, on Thursday, May 30, 2013; and
WHEREAS, The need for the New York State Tug Hill Commission arose
from local concerns that development of the region's remote, core forest
would damage the region's environment, economy, and its way of life; and
WHEREAS, The New York State Tug Hill Commission first met in 1973; it
is governed by nine local Commissioners from the Tug Hill towns chosen
by the Governor, President Pro Tem of the Senate, and Speaker of the
Assembly to represent the Region; and
WHEREAS, The New York State Tug Hill Commission has worked with the 62
towns and villages of the Tug Hill region in natural resource
protection, land use planning, economic development, downtown revitali-
zation and related fields; and
WHEREAS, Several other pieces of State legislation that recognize the
Tug Hill region and its importance include the Tug Hill Reserve Act of
1992, and the Tug Hill Conservation Easement Act of 1998; and
WHEREAS, Today, the Commission works through five councils of govern-
ments that include most of the towns and villages in the region; each
council employs a circuit rider cooperatively as a means of helping
member communities work together, and draw on the services of Commission
staff based out of Watertown, New York; and
WHEREAS, The New York State Tug Hill Commission has served the inter-
ests of the people of the Empire State for 40 years; and
WHEREAS, In so effectively carrying out its mission, the New York
State Tug Hill Commission has demonstrated the value of its services;
and
WHEREAS, It is the sense of this Legislative Body that when commis-
sions of such noble aims and accomplishments are brought to our atten-
tion, they should be celebrated and recognized by all the citizens of
this great Empire State; now, therefore, be it
RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause in its deliberations to
commemorate the 40th Anniversary of the New York State Tug Hill Commis-
sion; and be it further
RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to the New York State Tug Hill Commission.
