Launches new ‘Wounded Warriors’ Tax Credit campaign
U.S. Senator Charles E. Schumer (D-NY) toured the International Paper facility Friday, Aug. 31 and revealed his plan to prioritize the extension of The Returning Heroes and Wounded Warriors Tax Credit, which is a proven success in incentivizing companies to hire veterans and is set to expire at the end of this year.
Training funds sought
Visiting a business park owned by the city of Glens Falls, U.S. Sen. Charles Schumer proclaimed Monday Feb. 20 that he'd be lobbying hard to obtain a federal grant to train workers in hazardous materials cleanup and other high-technology skills at a soon-to-be-constructed training center in Queensbury. The center is to be built by a pipefitters' union that represents workers from the Capital Region north to the Canadian border.
