Governor’s 2016 agenda includes tax relief for small businesses, funding for water infrastructure projects, new downtown revitalization program and 6th round of Regional Council initiative
Earlier this afternoon, Governor Cuomo unveiled the fourth signature proposal of his 2016 agenda: a series of investments and initiatives designed to continue growing the economy and building stronger, more vibrant communities across New York State. These proposals include significant tax relief for small businesses, increased funding to support municipal water infrastructure improvement projects, a new effort to revitalize and transform downtown areas in each region of the state, and a sixth round of the successful Regional Economic Development Council initiative. The Governor discussed these announcements – which are a preview of signature policies from his upcoming 2016 agenda – during an event today in Rochester.
