Governor Unveils Latest Proposals from 2016 Agenda at Event on Long Island
Governor Cuomo unveiled two signature proposals of his 2016 agenda: a comprehensive plan to transform and expand vital infrastructure downstate and make critical investments in the region, and a number of initiatives to bolster New York’s legacy of environmental protection. These proposals include a major expansion and improvement project for the Long Island Rail Road and $300 million for the State’s Environmental Protection Fund – the highest amount ever for the fund and more than double the fund’s level when the Governor first took office.
The Governor outlined these initiatives at an event today in Nassau County, where he was joined by Long Island Association President Kevin Law, MTA Chairman Thomas F. Prendergast and LIRR President Patrick Nowakowski.
