New York State Governor Cuomo VETOED bill S7957A.
This is the bill that targeted permit holders and our local communities. It would have required the Hudson River Black River Regulating District (HRBRRD) to undertake a comprehensive study of Lake beneficiaries and property tax apportionments.
This is good news for everyone around the lake, especially permit holders and tax payers in the Towns of Mayfield, Broadalbin, Hadley, Edinburg and Day. Now we can work on a long term solution that recognizes that the true beneficiaries are identified and the costs of operating the District are funded correctly.
The SPC would like to thank all of the individuals who contacted the Governor's office to help defeat this bill, and to everyone who supports our efforts. According to our sources in addition to the 1000's of phone calls the Governor's office received over 200 letters. The letters were the most his office has received on an issue in his tenure.

The bill requiring the HRBRRD to undertake a comprehensive study of beneficiaries is now on Governor Cuomo's desk. Even if you've already called, please call again and ask the Governor to VETO this bill.
Please call the Governor's office at 518-474-8390 and ask him to veto bill S7957A, the bill requiring the Hudson River Black River Regulating District undertake a new beneficiaries study. The bill is flawed, and unjustly targets permit holders on the Great Sacandaga Lake and the people of Fulton and Saratoga counties.
