Unshackle Upstate pushes Albany on brownfield reform

SYRACUSE - Unshackle Upstate is pushing state lawmakers to overhaul New York's brownfield-redevelopment program before the end of the current legislative session in June.

Unshackle Upstate is a coalition of more than 70 upstate business and trade groups representing more than 45,000 employers and 1.5 million workers. The group regularly advocates on issues affecting business.

Local leaders of the effort held a press conference May 5 and called on legislators to wrap up work on brownfield legislation.

The state Senate and the governor have both put forward proposals to reform the state's brownfield programs; the Assembly is expected to do so as well, Unshackle Upstate leaders said. This year's budget imposed a 90-day moratorium on new brownfield redevelopment applications while lawmakers worked through overhauling the system. Unshackle Upstate leaders said they want to make sure that overhaul gets done quickly.
