Business Council statement on Governor’s support of water infrastructure funding

ALBANY, N.Y.—"Governor Cuomo's announcement to advance $2 billion towards rebuilding water infrastructure across New York represents a substantial commitment to addressing the state's aging water infrastructure,” said Darren Suarez, director of Government Affairs for The Business Council of New York State, Inc. “The Business Council strongly supports this action, and similar calls by the state Senate. The need for additional water infrastructure dollars is great and will help put people to work, address a pressing environmental need, and strengthen our communities.”
