Top official to make local 'State of the State' address in Falls Friday

Matthew J. Driscoll, president and CEO of the New York State Environmental Facilities Corp., will deliver a regional presentation of Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo's State of the State at noon Friday at the John Duke Senior Center, 1201 Hyde Park Blvd.

New York Power Authority President and CEO Gil Quiniones was originally scheduled to make the appearance, but is no longer able to attend because of a scheduling conflict.

In his State of the State issued Jan. 8, Cuomo unveiled a wide range of proposals including funding for a genome research consortium between Buffalo and Manhattan, bonuses for top-performing public school teachers, modest tax breaks for property owners and tougher penalties for repeat drunk drivers and teens who text and drive.
