Assemblyman Anthony Brindisi is attending Governor Cuomo's Start Up NY Conference in New York City today.

Brindisi's trip to New York is part of a wider plan to springboard development on the heels fo the "Nano Utica" announcement.

He says the time is now to link potential companies and industries with our SUNY assest in the Utica-Rome region.

Start Up NY will create tax-free zones to attract and grow new businesses across the state.
