New legislation could lure tech jobs

TROY -- A new bipartisan bill could mean new science and technology jobs in the state.

Speaking at RPI on Monday, Senator Kirsten Gillibrand announced the proposed legislation would help bring $520 million each year to the state for research funding. The bill, dubbed the Transfer Act, would create a competitive grant program of higher learning institutions, federal labs and nonprofit research institutions to help scientists bring their discoveries to the forefront of job creation.
