Legislature Supports Legislation to Permit Appropriation of County Funds for Affordable Housing

Tuesday, June 5, 2018

The Legislature, without dissent, urged passage of proposed State home rule legislation, introduced by Senator Tom O’Mara, to amend the section of New York State County Law to permit Tompkins County use local funds and contract with other entities to develop, maintain and manage affordable housing.  That action follows up an earlier request by the Legislature for sponsorship of such State legislation.  The legislation would add a new subdivision to the section of County Law permitting such use, an action that has also been supported by the New York State Association of Counties.
