A panel of government, labor and business leaders put together to push infrastructure projects in New York is set to meet in Albany.
The New York Works Task Force has a session scheduled for this afternoon.
Governor Andrew Cuomo appointed the 15 members to oversee ways of speeding up construction projects and rebuilding roads and bridges. The group also considers how to allocate infrastructure money around the state and help create jobs.
In August, the Task Force held a meeting with Cuomo and other state officials as the state budget director, Bob Megna, presented their financial plan for the rebuilding of the Tappan Zee Bridge, which was recently approved for federal funding. The group consists of labor leaders and public officials from around the state. It was created in May of this year.
