VETERANS | JOE ROBACH URGES FOR PASSAGE OF “JOBS FOR HEROES” PROGRAM

State Senator Joe Robach joined veterans and colleagues at the New York State Capitol to stress the importance of passing the NY Jobs For Heroes Program (S2803B), a concept that was recently supported by Governor Cuomo in his State of the State address.

The NY Jobs For Heroes Program, supported by Joe Robach, will create a state contract preference for service-connected disabled veteran owned small businesses in New York State. The legislation mirrors the highly successful federal program that is presently established for a contract set aside. Currently nearly forty other states are successfully using this program. This legislation has repeatedly passed in the Senate since it was introduced in 2007.
