State Sen. Mark Grisanti, R-60th, announced Friday that Gov. Andrew Cuomo has made laws of two Grisanti bills. The first, S.6639, amends the environmental conservation law to extend the state water pollution control revolving fund 50 percent subsidy through Sept. 30, 2015, to allow municipalities to receive financial assistance to acquire, construct and upgrade eligible water pollution control projects. The second bill, S. 6048B, amends the parks, recreation and historic preservation law for the not-for-profit corporation known as the Michigan Street African American Heritage Corridor Commission to add a new voting member and extend the deadline for submitting a draft management plan.
"I am pleased that the bills have passed the legislature and have been signed into law by the governor," Grisanti said. "Both of these bills are positive for the citizens of my district, Western New York and the state as a whole. Keeping intact the various incentives for municipalities to implement projects that ensure clean water is essential for environmental conservation. Additionally, our historic and cultural institutions, especially on the east side of Buffalo, need to develop funding sources to ensure their future survival. These two very important local endeavors will see positive growth due to today's signing by the governor."
