Assemblyman Magnarelli
Increasing jobs, improving the Central New York economy

Fighting to bring jobs to Central New York

Assemblyman Bill Magnarelli is fighting for state investment in Central New York to spur economic growth and new jobs. This year’s budget includes:

  • $20 million for the Connective Corridor cultural development initiative to enhance emerging arts and business districts in Syracuse and attract new businesses

  • $5 million for the continued renovation of the landmark Hotel Syracuse to revitalize downtown

  • $13 million to save jobs at New Process Gear

  • $600,000 for the Metropolitan Development Association of Syracuse & CNY for economic development and jobs in the 12-county Central New York region

  • $125,000 for the NY Indoor Environmental Quality Commercialization Grant Program to create new products and jobs in Central New York

  • $100,000 for the Syracuse University Renaissance Internship Program, which pairs graduate engineering students with Central New York businesses

Investing in our communities, helping to keep local taxes in check

Rising local costs are increasing property taxes across the state. That’s why Magnarelli fought to significantly increase funding to the Aid and Incentives to Municipalities program (AIM) and the Consolidated Local Street and Highway Improvement Program (CHIPS).

The increased funding for both AIM and CHIPS saves local government and taxpayers millions, while improving the quality of life in Central New York.

City of Syracuse Geddes, Van Buren, Solvay, Baldwinsville

Increase of 11 percent in AIM funding

Increase of 18 percent in CHIPS funding

Increase of 5 percent in AIM funding

Increase of 19-22 percent in CHIPS funding

“By forging innovative partnerships with businesses and educational institutions, Central New York can develop strategies to create jobs and improve the economy.”
