Mr. Pasquale presented the highlights of staff’s recommendations to the Board.  In response to a question from Mr. Corbett, Mr. Pasquale said that the 20 companies that were not in job compliance were eligible to apply for reconsideration of their power allocation reduction.  Chairman McCullough added that Authority staff would notify those companies about the process for applying for such reconsideration. 

In response to another question from Mr. Corbett, Chairman McCullough said that the future of the PFJ program, among others, was one of the topics being discussed by the temporary Commission on the Future of New York State Power Programs for Economic Development.  He said that the Commission was in the process of conducting open meetings across the State and was expected to publish its report by early December.  Chairman McCullough added that the Authority would send the EDPAB members newsclips relating to the Commission’s work, as well as transcripts of the public meetings.

 

NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, That the Board hereby finds and determines that such applications meet the requirements of the extended benefits provisions of the Power for Jobs legislation contained in Article 6 of the Economic Development Law as amended by Chapter 313 of the Laws of 2005; and be it further
