Hochul is working on ‘getting the money’ to help restore the NYS economy
Governor Kathy Hochul said a top priority for the rest of this year is to “bring us back” – move New York State forward in the wake of the economic challenges of the Covid-19 pandemic.
During his recent visit to Johnson City, Hochul told WNBF News that “small businesses that have been absolutely devastated” continue to need help.
The governor said restaurants and stores across the state still need help after challenges posed by the pandemic.
Hochul said more money should be made available to landlords who haven’t been paid rent by tenants who have had Covid-related issues.
The governor is hoping that additional federal funding will be approved so that New Yorkers who still need help can be helped.
Hochul said she wanted to “let people know that they have a state government they can believe in again.”
