U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand is making a swing through upstate New York to promote legislation she says will boost high-tech manufacturing.
Gillibrand plans stops Monday in the Buffalo, Rochester and Syracuse areas to talk about a bill that would create a federal funding competition to encourage public-private partnerships aimed at spurring growth in local manufacturing.
The Democrat says her bill could help develop clean-tech and high-tech manufacturing in New York.
