Bill Will Cede Certain Land To The Federal Government
Senator Bill Larkin (R-C, Cornwall-on-Hudson), announced today that Senate bill S6830A passed the Senate. This legislation will cede to the federal government full concurrent jurisdiction in and over certain lands of the West Point Military Reservation in Highlands, Orange County.
Senator Bill Larkin (R-C, Cornwall-on-Hudson) said today: “I am extremely disappointed with Governor Cuomo’s veto of the veterans’ buyback legislation (S.7839/A.6974-B) and I am especially disheartened that he chose to do so the eve of Veterans Day. I am currently in the process of meeting with my legislative staff in order to determine the best course of action to move this issue forward in spite of the Governor’s veto. I will continue to do all I can to ensure that New York’s veterans receive the benefits they rightfully deserve.”
