Hochul announces $450m for NY state’s tourism industry
Gov. Kathy Hochul says $450 million is coming to the New York tourism industry.
The governor says this is to help struggling businesses rehire staff and help business struggling from the pandemic.
The $450 million is going to be split up within the tourism industry.
The governor says New York has lost a considerable amount of cash from a lack of tourism since the pandemic started.
"We’re incentivizing the tourism businesses, the non-for-profits including the culturals, to rehire their workers. We know you can put them to use, and I know financially it doesn’t make sense. That’s why we’re going to help you out," said Hochul.
