The New York State today passed legislation that creates one August primary date for state and Congressional races, saving taxpayers at least $25 million and bringing the state into compliance with federal election requirements for overseas balloting. The bill (S6604), sponsored by Senator Fred Akshar (R-C-I, Colesville), would designate the third Tuesday in August as the date to merge the current federal non-presidential primary held in June and the state primary held in September.

State Senator Patty Ritchie is announcing passage of her legislation to create New York’s first official craft beer trail, a unique attraction that would boost the Upstate economy and highlight local craft breweries in Northern New York.

Similar to the way in which wine trails have been established in the region, Ritchie’s bill (S.518-A) would create the “North Country Craft Beer Trail,” linking craft breweries in Jefferson and St. Lawrence Counties.
