He expressed enthusiasm for his expanded responsibilities and affirmed his commitment to effect positive policy changes in these areas. “New York state is at a critical juncture as both employers and residents grapple with the economic fallout of the pandemic. My role as Ranking Member on these three very different but critically important committees will give me the opportunity to work on and advocate for policies that will help revitalize our agriculture and financial services sectors as well as improve the accountability of our state contracts at this time of limited resources,” Borrello said. “There are also a host of issues beyond pandemic recovery that must be addressed, setting the stage for a very busy legislative session.” Borrello was also named as a member of several additional committees. He received new appointments to the Finance and Aging committees and reappointments to the Local Government and Internet and Technology committees.
