Senator Skelos' Statement on $4.4 Billion Computer Chip Technology Investment

September 27, 2011

Although we have more to do to ensure that every New Yorker who wants a job can find one, today's announcement is further proof that New York is once again open for business. This multibillion dollar investment in New York's economy will help us create and retain thousands of good jobs, and spur even more economic growth across the State.

I applaud Governor Cuomo for his leadership and New York's economic development professionals for their outstanding work, and credit Intel and IBM for forging a partnership for the future. I am confident that we can build on this historic investment so businesses have the tools they need to succeed.
