    NORTHERN WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. — Lawmakers in Northern Westchester are hoping 2014 will see many productive accomplishments…

    State Sen.Greg Ball said he is looking forward to a 2014 session of the state Legislature and said his top focus is to pass his New York Jobs For Heroes Program, which would create a state contract preference for small businesses in New York State owned by service-connected disabled veterans.

    “The next session must be focused on reducing taxes and creating jobs to create a better business climate here in New York State,” Ball said.

    Ball said he also wants to deliver mandate relief and enable public-private partnerships.

    “Public-private partnership legislation will enable a new innovative finance model that will open New York State to business, allowing us to maintain our crumbling infrastructure without passing the bill down to taxpayers and ratepayers,” Ball said. (ARTICLE)
