State Assemblyman Marc Butler says Governor Cuomo will be announcing details of his ten million dollar aid package for residents affected by flooding in the Mohawk Valley, North Country, and Southern Tier regions of New York.

The Governor is expected to make the announcement at Herkimer County Community College this morning, July 17, 2013.

Assemblyman Butler says the news is timed well politically, and may help the Governor rebound politically from some of the charged reaction to the NY SAFE Act.  He also says Cuomo’s position on the issue of fracking remains volatile.

He noted that Governor Cuomo has made several trips to the Herkimer area in the past few months, and says it is interesting that the Governor is making this announcement unilaterally.  He says although the Governor will be the one making the announcement, he is happy for the residents that relief is coming, regardless of who gets the credit.

“We have the potential of some good things happening,” Butler says, adding that developments at SUNYIT have the potential to be “game changers.”
