A bill co-sponsored by Senator Patty Ritchie and Senator John DeFrancisco to expand Central New York’s Foreign Trade is aimed at helping Oswego County compete for new jobs and businesses in the global market.
The bill, S. 6471, which authorizes Onondaga County’s Zone to collaborate with Oswego, Cayuga and Madison counties, received final passage by the Senate earlier this week.
“Imports and exports are a major source of growth and new jobs for businesses across Central New York,” Ritchie said. “Including the Port of Oswego in the Foreign Trade Zone can help businesses looking to grow in Central New York compete for international trade.”
In addition, the budget includes funding to battle water chestnuts in the Oswego River.
Ritchie said she secured the funding, which was included in the budget agreement announced Monday.
“Local communities, outdoorsmen and people who enjoy the open waters of Central and Northern New York have been working for years to help improve quality and access to these waters, which are among the most beautiful in the world, and key to the preservation and growth of new jobs through tourism and increased enjoyment by the public,” Ritchie said.
