New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is visiting three upstate college campuses to discuss the tax-free zones that were approved by the state Legislature last week.
In May, the governor unveiled his plan to give new employers and their employees 10 years of tax-free living if they locate on or near college campuses in New York state. Last Wednesday, the Cuomo administration changed the plan's name from Tax-Free New York to Start-Up New York.
The Legislature approved the plan on Friday as it wrapped up its 2013 session.
