    Seems legit, that’s a lot of funding! I hope they work out whatever is needed to ensure operation of the shuttles. That will help the 2021 season enormously. Nice that the VIC and ADI are still funded (I agree the ADI could have used a boost), and many millions for climate related initiatives.

    One more thought here, since I’m seeing larger discussions of this budget in the news: how did Stec vote? I notice that Stefanik for example gets a lot of free publicity in the press for praising budget allocations that she didn’t support. Is Stec the same way? There was a lot in the overall bill he may not have liked (taxing the rich, for example).

    I tried to search for his vote but couldn’t find it, not sure if the results are on the formal website. Nonetheless, press should be reading every press release so we don’t have to :), and Stec has perhaps said more on this bill than just that quote.

    I hope it is not annoying that I keep interrogating the “just a nice guy hiker” theme related to Stec. His decisions have big consequences for the future of NY. Hope he actually made the right call here, instead of just praising it after the fact.
