The New York State Senate voted to pass (S.3164), sponsored by Senator George Maziarz (R-C, Newfane), to create a new, permanent program called “Recharge NY,” that would provide low-cost power to help businesses create and retain jobs.
“ The passage of this legislation will allow more business in my district and across New York access cheaper electricity to create jobs,” said Senator Mark Grisanti.
“The program has been renewed on an annual basis for several years, but we’ve needed a permanent solution so businesses can plot their growth. The passage of this legislation ensures that businesses across New York will have the stability needed to plan long-term,” said Senator George D. Maziarz, Chairman of the Senate Energy and Telecommunications Committee.
