COLD SPRING HARBOR - Gov. Andrew Cuomo was on Long Island today to see what Nassau and Suffolk are doing to jumpstart the economy. First, Cuomo visited Cold Spring Harbor Lab, which is expanding its cancer research and hiring 30 new workers as a result of a $2 million grant. Then, the governor visited a Farmingdale pharmaceutical company which plans to add 24 new jobs because of a state grant. Later, he visited a manufacturer that plans to add 50 new jobs after being awarded nearly $2 million in state funds. Long Island received $100 million as part of the governor's plan to trigger job growth across the state. By the end of the year, the state will be awarding a second round of grants to regions across New York. Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano was part of the tour. He's hoping for state funds to help redevelop the area around Nassau Coliseum. Officials on Long Island are pitching Cuomo 16 new projects in hopes of getting funding.For more on Cuomo's visit, click News 12 Extra on Optimum TV channel 612.
