August 9, 2011

Assemblyman Andrew Raia (R, I, C – East Northport) today applauded Governor Andrew Cuomo for signing the new higher education reform NYSUNY 2020 into law. NYSUNY 2020 will institute a rational tuition plan and will help SUNY Stony Brook become a leading public university while improving students’ academic experience and maintaining affordability for parents.

“NYSUNY 2020 is Stony Brook’s catalyst for job growth in our region,” said Raia. “Here, on Long Island, we have one of the top research universities in the country if not the world. I applaud the Governor for recognizing the success of our public university system, and with the help of NYSUNY 2020, Stony Brook will bring promising economic development, innovation and job growth to Long Island.”
