ALBANY, NY—State Senator David J. Valesky (D-Oneida) today lauded the passage of the state’s fourth and historic consecutive on-time budget. This has not been accomplished with the same Governor and legislative leaders in more than 40 years.

SYRACUSE, N.Y. - Mayor Stephanie Miner said she will continue to seek state money to pay for new water mains in Syracuse, despite Gov. Andrew Cuomo's statement this week that the city should pay for pipes itself by invigorating the local economy.
State legislators from Central New York have promised Miner they will seek additional funding for Syracuse infrastructure in the next state budget, the mayor said Thursday.
Allowing the century-old water system to deteriorate further is not an option, she said.
