Seward Named To Panel
To Seek Technology Jobs
ALBANY – State Sen. Jim Seward, R-Milford, has been named to the state Senate Select Committee on Technology and Innovation, aimed at creating jobs in the technology field.
“A recent U.S. Census report showed more than 190,000 people left New York State last year. We must create new opportunities here at home to stop that exodus and reverse that trend,” said Seward.
“New technology and innovation companies are starting to grow in New York, but more can be done to help foster this vital segment of our economy. This new senate committee will develop strategies to boost our tech sector leading to good paying jobs and careers.”
Along with the new assignment, Seward will continue to chair the Senate Insurance Committee and serve on the senate standing committees on agriculture, education, finance, health, higher education and rules. He is also a member of the Senate Select Committee on Libraries and the Senate Task Force on Heroin and Opioid Addiction.
