Hochul announces almost half a billion in tourism industry funding

Governor Kathy Hochul announced almost half a billion in state funds to boost the tourism industry and its workers recover from the COVID-19 pandemic on Monday.

The governor wants to provide as much as $450 million for the ailing sector as federal authorities have started allowing international visitors back into the United States if they are fully vaccinated against the coronavirus on Nov. 8.
