Gov to visit colleges to discuss tax-free NY plan
BUFFALO -- Gov. Andrew Cuomo is visiting three college campuses in upstate New York to discuss the tax-free zones that were approved by the state Legislature last week.
In May, the governor unveiled his plan to give new employers and their employees 10 years of tax-free living if they locate on or near college campuses in New York state. Last Wednesday, the Cuomo administration changed the plan's name from Tax-Free New York to Start-Up New York.
The Legislature approved the plan on Friday as it wrapped up its 2013 session.
Cuomo plans to visit three upstate campuses Monday, starting in the morning at Buffalo State College. He then heads to Monroe Community College in the Rochester suburb of Henrietta, followed by a visit to Binghamton University.
