(Continued)

Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — In a statement, Kathryn J. Boor, the Ronald P. Lynch Dean of the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, applauded Schumer’s proposal. The proposal would allow New York’s cider producers to label and market their products independently of wine, leading to a reliable source of revenue, she said.

Dean Norton, president of New York Farm Bureau, said the legislation would “contribute to the growth and diversification of these farm based businesses and the jobs they provide to their local communities.”
