Byrnes: Increase Funding For Local Roads

A Statement from Assemblywoman Marjorie Byrnes (R,C-Caledonia)

“In rural communities our roads are the lifeblood of our neighborhoods. Passable roads are the difference between life and death in an emergency. They ensure public safety. They make all the difference in commerce and our small, ‘Main Street’ economies. It is essential that Albany understands we need to continue to fund programs like the Consolidated Local Street and Highway Improvement Program and other local infrastructure programs, expand broadband access and affordability and make these services a priority not only for the safety of New Yorkers but for our economy as well.”
