Assemblyman Brian Miller (R,I-New Hartford) issues statement on economic development budget hearing

“Today’s Economic Development budget public hearing comes at a fortuitous time with the start of the Joe Percoco corruption trial just last week. START-UP NY has failed, costing New Yorkers nearly $400 million; a top aide to the governor is on trial for accepting bribes related to economic development projects and the Regional Economic Development Council Awards are a nightmare, pitting neighboring counties and regions against each other for funding they all need. I am a sponsor and strong supporter of legislation (A.5657) that will shed light on how these funds are being handed out and put an end to the pay-for-play schemes we have seen. All regions of our state deserve funding for economic stimulus programs, not the chosen few. I encourage residents to pay close attention to how economic development funds are allocated during this year’s budget negotiations.”

Assemblyman Miller represents the 101st District consisting of parts of Delaware, Herkimer, Oneida, Orange, Otsego, Sullivan and Ulster counties. For more information, please visit Assemblyman Miller’s Official Website.
