Buffalo Billion Investment Development Plan

Statement From Senator Patrick M. Gallivan - Chairman of the Senate Commerce, Economic Development and Small Business Committee

“The Governor’s reaffirmed commitment to Western New York today is welcome news amidst Superstorm Sandy’s  yet-to-be determined fiscal impact on the state budget. Western New York’s economy is a sleeping giant and I believe our regional economic development council has put forth a series of initiatives that recognize and build upon our local strengths: new market biotechnology applications, advanced manufacturing and continued investment in our regional tourism assets are the road map to a prosperous future.  In the coming months I look forward to working with the Governor and the regional council to see these initiatives to fruition.”
