Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo will announce the states decision for the second round of funding for the Regional Economic Development Councils at 10 a.m. today.
Area leaders are hoping for a repeat of last years successes. The North Country Economic Development Council received more than $100 million in state funding last year, the second-highest among the states ten regions. This gives the council priority for increased funding this year.
The council plans to continue last years strategy of promoting business growth through biotechnology, broadband access and high-speed rail, as well as increasing tourism.
The governors announcement will be live streamed online at www.governor.ny.gov.
