BUFFALO, N.Y. — New York will see more than $54 billion from the latest COVID-19 spending package between money earmarked for businesses, families, governments and more.
“There’s more to be done,” Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-NY, said. “This is not a stimulus. It’s an emergency survival bill so today is a good day but it’s not the end of the story.”
Dottie Gallagher Cohen, the president of the Buffalo Niagara Partnership, said the regional chamber of commerce is generally pleased with the package.
“We were really concerned that nothing was going to get done until after the first of the year, so getting this done for the individuals and businesses and giving them some certainty prior to the end of the year was super important,” she said.
