Stock Transfer Tax could fund infrastructure upgrades
Assemblyman Phillip G. Steck / For The Daily Gazette | November 12, 2017
The Mohawk River is perhaps the single most unifying force in the 110th Assembly District.
The historic Stockade in Schenectady, the town of Niskayuna, and the town of Colonie, which comprise the 110th Assembly District, all have areas prone to flooding from the Mohawk. My staff and I attended Union College's Spring 2017 Mohawk River Symposium, where the main focus was water quality in the Mohawk, both for recreational uses, which impacts all the new development near Rivers casino, and Colonie, which draws its water directly from the Mohawk and treats it before distributing it to residents (Schenectady County communities draw their water from the aquifer under the Mohawk).
