Governor focuses on access to safe swimming
Gov. Kathy Hochul on Friday unveiled another proposal ahead of her State of the State next week. This one focused on expanding access to safe swimming.
“NY Swims” will build out municipal pools in high-need areas, connect New Yorkers to the state’s rivers and lakes, deploy pools in urban environments and invest in state parks and pools.
It will also address the statewide lifeguard shortage, increase swimming instruction and increase amenities at pools and beaches.
