HUNT's business development representatives were able to network with colleagues from all over New York and participate in workshops and meetings focused on New York Counties' pressing issues and legislative priorities for 2024.


You can review the 2024 NYSAC Legislative Conference Resolutions here, which include resolutions on economic development, climate action, public health and safety, transportation, and public works.


Some notable resolutions included:

 

Resolution for added support for solar canopies to utilize existing space to generate renewable energy.

 

Resolution urging the restoration of funding for water infrastructure in New York's 2025 budget would call for the Clean Water Infrastructure to be restored to a roughly 500-million-dollar budget, which Governor Hochul reduced to 250 million dollars in the 2024-2025 budget.

 

The resolution to support a new round of capital funding for New York Airports that pushes for 250 million dollars for airport development and revitalization in 2025, as well as an annual increase of 40 million over the following three years for the Aviation Capital Grant Program.

 

The resolution supporting increases for local highway, bridge, and culvert programs as construction cost inflation is almost 60% of what it was four years ago. New York State's 5-year Transportation Capital Plan supports improvements, but counties and municipalities struggle due to inflation and growing construction costs. NYSAC supports the 60-million-dollar restoration in the Consolidated Local Street and Highway Improvement program (CHIPS) and the 40-million-dollar restoration in Extreme Winter Recovery Program (EWR) funding in the 2025 New York State Budget and further supports increasing these budgets by 90 million dollars for CHIPS and 60 million dollars for EWR to be split over the remaining three years of the state's five-year transportation capital plan.

 

These resolutions and budgets will have a direct impact on HUNT within our solar, water wastewater, and transportation markets.
