New York Building Congress Statement on Governor Cuomo's State of the State Address

“Governor Cuomo continues to lead with an ambitious infrastructure and economic development agenda,” said Carlo A. Scissura, President & CEO of the New York Building Congress. “The Governor has shown an unprecedented determination to rebuild New York and invest in our state’s future, with transformative proposals for Stewart and LaGuardia airports, a new cross-sound tunnel from Long Island, expanding and reconfiguring Penn Station, a study of mass transit improvements in Red Hook and a re-imagining and rebuilding at the piers on Columbia Street in Brooklyn. Just as important, we are greatly encouraged by the Governor’s steadfast commitment to fund New York’s share of the Gateway project, the most critical infrastructure project in the nation. The Building Congress has long advocated for preserving and enhancing our cross-Hudson access and expanding rail capacity at Penn Station to ensure the stability of our national economy. In addition, Governor Cuomo’s plan for reducing congestion and rebuilding the MTA is more necessary than ever. The Building Congress is committed to working alongside the Governor to realize these projects, drive further economic growth and create thousands of good-paying jobs for workers across this state.”
