Push tech-transfer from academia to commercialization

The economic challenge that continues is tech-transfer from academia to commercialization. New York universities are ranked second nationally in total research dollars spent. California is first, but New York only gets 4% of the nation's venture capital while California gets 47%. We're doing the research, we've developed the ideas, we have the academic institutions; we're not making the transference to commercialization. That gap is what we have to fix and that's what we have to fill. To help do that, we propose creating new innovation hotspots. An innovation hotspot is a high-tech incubator between the higher-ed and the private sector for startup companies. An innovation hotspot will be a tax-free zone. No business, real property, or sales tax. If a business stays an incubated business; is located in that zone, they will pay no tax. That zone will provide one-stop funding and services--legal services, accounting services, all the services they need to grow their business.

Crack down on texting while driving

Texting or using a handheld electronic device while driving is dangerous and has led to fatal accidents in New York State, often involving young people. To crack down on distracted driving and make New York's roadways safer for all, the Governor and Legislature put in place tough new penalties for drivers who use electronic devices while behind the wheel. The law has been an overwhelming success, increasing four-fold the number of tickets given for texting-while-driving violations in the one year since the new measures took effect; bringing the number from more than 4,500 to nearly 21,000 violations per year.
