Standing at the Fredonia State Technology Incubator, U.S. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, joined by SUNY Fredonia President Dr. Virginia Horvath, Chautauqua Chamber of Commerce President Todd Tranum, and Dunkirk Mayor A.J. Dolce, today announced legislation to spur the growth of new science and technology jobs in Western New York and across New York. The "America Innovates Act" would help scientists and researchers secure valuable resources and training to turn their discoveries into marketable products, new high-tech companies, and jobs.
"New York is home to some of the world's brightest minds and best ideas to grow our economy," said Gillibrand. "This common-sense legislation will help develop scientific breakthroughs into cutting edge businesses and new jobs. Providing our scientists and students with practical business skills will go a long way towards creating high-tech industries and building the next generation of innovative leaders. This is the future of our economy, and we need to make sure it starts right here in Western New York."
