New York State Assembly

New York State Senator David Carlucci (D-Rockland/Orange) has introduced a bill in Albany to help local farmers.  He wants to give a $100 tax credit for every $1,000 restaurants spend on locally grown produce.  To qualify, a restaurant must buy fresh food from any farm within a 100-mile radius.  Carlucci said this would help boost the local farm industries around the state.
