Assembly Passes Relief Effort For Lake Ontario Flood Impacted Homeowners & Businesses
A Statement from Assemblyman Mike Norris (R,I-Lockport) on the Passage of A.8013
June 19, 2017
My colleagues and I have been working together across the aisle to provide the relief that homeowners and businesses along Lake Ontario’s south shore need to mitigate the ongoing flooding. I am proud to co-sponsor this legislation. This state of emergency has gone on for too long, and I am hopeful that the measure will be signed into law so that we can provide over $90 million in much-needed relief to property owners, businesses and municipalities.
I would like to thank all of the town and county officials, volunteer fire departments, local highway crews and the National Guard for their dedicated service around the clock to protect the shoreline of Lake Ontario.
