Catskill Rail Trail Funding 2013 NYS Budget

Update date: 
March 13, 2013
Issue in brief: 

Governor Cuomo's Executive 2013 Budget includes a $2 million budget item to support the Catskill Mountain Rail Trail (CMRT). The Assembly supports the allocation, but the State Senate has removed it. We urge the Senate to restore this proposed funding. Time is of the essence as final budget negotiations are now in progress.


March 14, 2013: State Senate balks at funding Catskill Rail Trail. Urge your senator to join Gov. Cuomo and the Assembly in budgeting $2 million for this economically important trails project. Act Now!
