SENATE PASSES BILL TO CREATE “RECHARGE NY” POWER PROGRAM

Senator John A. DeFrancisco (R-I-C, Syracuse) and his colleagues passed legislation (S.3164) yesterday to create “Recharge NY,” a program that would provide low-cost power to help businesses create and retain jobs.

“This bill will provide businesses with a permanent solution for low-cost electricity.  With a permanent solution in place, businesses will have the stability they need to make long-term plans for their businesses, and they will be able to create jobs,” said Senator DeFrancisco.

“The current Power for Jobs program requires businesses to receive extensions each year, which makes it impossible to plan for the future,” said Senator DeFrancisco.
