      Senator William T. Stachowski (D, Lake View) today announced the State Senate has passed legislation (S.7676) he sponsored to create the High Performance Computing Program within the New York State Foundation for Science, Technology and Innovation (NYSTAR) that will connect researchers and businesses with New York State's high performance computing resources.
