“Recharge NY” An Important Step In Job Creation

The Niagara USA Chamber was proud to be in attendance on Thursday April 14th, when Governor Andrew M. Cuomo gathered with Republican and Democratic legislators at Ascension Industries, a Chamber member, to sign the “Recharge New York” bill. This legislation which redefines the Power for Jobs program makes it a permanent bill, ending the year to year extenders that have been used in previous years as a new energy policy, has continuously failed to find consensus among the Legislature. Cuomo pointed out that this new program will greatly assist in reducing costs for businesses in a region that has the third highest power rates in the nation.

This effort has been in the works for several years. Through the hard work and bi-partisanship of Senator Maziarz and other area leaders and with strong support from Niagara USA Chamber and other advocacy organizations this new program is a major step in revitalizing the region.
