TECT Power receives Pollution Prevention Achievement Award
The New York State Pollution Prevention Institute, housed at Rochester Institute of Technology, awarded its 2011 Pollution Prevention Achievement Award to TECT Power, a subsidiary of TECT Corp. an international aerospace components manufacturer. The award was presented today during a ceremony at the company’s production facility, 2 Halsey Road, in Whitesboro, N.Y.
TECT Power was recognized for its efforts to reduce the use of hazardous chemicals in its production processes.
On this week's episode, Senator Griffo breaks down the budget - taxes, spending, education, Common Core, higher ed, health care, agriculture, transporation and ethics.
With I Love My Parks Day upcoming, Griffo explains what state legislators are doing for the environment and for state parks. And finally, the senator recaps a forum on heroin and opioid abuse that he recently hosted in Utica.
Earth Day and Arbor Day are wonderful reminders of our ongoing obligation to protect our natural resources, which provide us shelter, food, fuel and beauty.
I was pleased to support this year’s state budget because it recognizes the importance of protecting our clean air and clean water and expanding our access to park lands and other open spaces. Our spending plan also includes needed investments in agriculture, which will allow our farmers to better use their land and to have an easier time bringing their harvest to homes.
