SYRACUSE, N.Y.—Businesses that have found it difficult to navigate state regulations or find available funding will now have a place to go for help, thanks to one of seven bills sponsored by State Senator David J. Valesky (D-Oneida) that were signed into law yesterday.
The legislation (S3076) creates regional “one-stop” economic development centers where business owners can learn about state programs that benefit their businesses and receive help in navigating sometimes complicated federal, state and local regulations, including licensing and permitting.
SYRACUSE, N.Y.—To help prevent projects like New York Regional Interconnect (NYRI) that could decimate Upstate communities against the will of local people, State Senator David J. Valesky (D-Oneida) and Assemblywoman RoAnn M. Destito (D/WF-Rome) sponsored legislation signed into law this week that will make financial resources available to communities to make their voices heard.
The legislation (S1599) resulted from the community outcry and subsequent defeat of the New York Regional Interconnect (NYRI) project in Oneida and Madison Counties.
NYRI. Those four letters will forever evoke feelings of anger and frustration throughout communities in Madison and Oneida counties. Though the upside of the NYRI fight and subsequent victory was the successful coalescence of residents to fight for their homes and communities, none of us want to be forced to go through that battle again.
