Hawley requests shoreline funding from Governor Cuomo and asks for President Trump to renegotiate Plan 2014.
Following another tour of the flooding along much of Lake Ontario’s shoreline, Assemblyman Steve Hawley of Batavia has joined a delegation of assembly members in writing to Gov. Cuomo asking for a relief package to be implemented before the end of session.
Hawley noted that the lake levels are a foot and a half higher than they were this time last year and urged the governor to act now to secure a relief package for homeowners and businesses.
Hawley also asked President Trump to renegotiate Plan 2014 that many believe is the root cause of much of the lake’s flooding.
The treaty was originally signed into law by President Obama only a short time before he left office.
