New York Passes Smart Growth Bill
Philip Langdon reports:
"Peter Fleischer, executive director of Empire State Future, noted that Gov. Paterson had told a Vision Long Island Smart Growth Summit last November that 'not making smart growth choices' may explain why 49 states have been hobbled by declining revenues.
The state Department of Transportation, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, the Department of Education, and the Empire State Development Corporation will be among the entities required to focus their infrastructure spending in developed areas."
