Span of Route 20A Will Connect At County Line With Wyoming County Veterans Memorial Highway
Senator Patrick M. Gallivan (R,C,I - 59th District) applauded Governor Cuomo today for taking time over the Veterans Day Weekend to sign legislation (S.4752 - Gallivan) designating a stretch of Route 20A as the "Livingston County Veterans Memorial Highway." The portion to be designated begins at I-390 and runs west to the Livingston County line, where it meets with a portion of Route 20A in Wyoming County already designated as the Wyoming County Veterans Memorial Highway.
It’s not a bad problem to have. What to do with more than $3 billion? That’s the question facing the State of New York after a settlement with BNP Paribas, a French bank charged with violating U.S. money laundering laws. Similar settlements with other banks could drive the total windfall to about $4 billion. As you can imagine, there is no shortage of ideas for what to do with this money. I believe the answer is simple; return the money to the people of New York by relieving the tax burden on residents and lowering the cost of government.
