Senate Passes Bills To Help Flood Victims

Jim Rondenelli, WIBX

The state Senate has passed four bills aimed at improving response and providing relief to residents impacted by flooding.

Senator Joseph Griffo says the package of bills is in response to last summer’s flooding. which caused an estimated $80 million in damage in the Mohawk Valley alone.

Senators James Seward and David Valeksy also sponsored the legislation.

The bills would establish an income tax credit for flood victims, a supplemental state disaster aid program and create an upstate flood mitigation task force.

Seward says the state needs to be better prepared to handle future flooding.

The bills now await action in the Assembly.
