Connections: Governor Andrew Cuomo on updates from the REDI Commission and state funding

Oct 24, 2019

We’re joined by Governor Andrew Cuomo, who discusses updates with the REDI Commission. He was in Rochester on Wednesday to announce that the state has awarded $133 million to 63 projects along the Lake Ontario shoreline. That funding will be used to rebuild and revitalize areas that sustained severe damage due to high lake levels.

We discuss the impact the Governor hopes that funding will have, and how lake flooding has affected the state’s economy. Our guests:
