Upstate New York Needs Regional Cooperation

New York Governor Eliot Spitzer has proposed that struggling communities in upstate New York form a regional cooperative to more effectively develop their economies.

"Gov. Eliot Spitzer announced Wednesday a tailored approach to revitalizing the upstate economy based on the strengths and geography of individual cities."

"The cities-driven strategy will complement ongoing statewide initiatives focused on lowering the cost of doing business in New York and strengthening the state's infrastructure, the governor said."

"New 'regional blueprints' will have state and local business leaders, elected officials and economic development agencies working together to set economic development priorities."
