“Unshackle Upstate congratulates The Finger Lakes, The Southern Tier and Central New York on being selected to receive $500 million in Upstate Revitalization Initiative funding. For decades, Albany failed to make significant investments in Upstate and our economy suffered as a result. We’re pleased that Governor Cuomo and the Legislature have recognized this problem and are taking action to address it.
“While the Upstate Revitalization Initiative will spur significant economy activity and promote job growth, it’s imperative that Albany continues to focus its attention on improving the state’s overall business climate so every region of Upstate can continue to build on recent successes.”
