Governor Presents 2015 Opportunity Agenda
On January 21st, Governor Andrew Cuomo delivered his 2015 State of the State address in Albany. In addition to the release of the 2015-2016 Executive Budget, the Governor’s speech included a presentation of his “2015 Opportunity Agenda” – a draft of more than 150 new and expanded initiatives designed to restore economic opportunity, improve and reform our education system, and restore the public’s confidence and trust in our justice system.
Key initiatives include – ensuring every New Yorker has access to high-speed broadband service by the end of 2018, launching a $1.5 billion Upstate New York Economic Revitalization Competition, and expanding and protecting agriculture in the Southern Tier and Hudson Valley.
CEDC looks forward to working with the Governor in 2015, as we build on the county and regional successes of the past year.
Kenneth J. Flood, Executive Director
