Governor George Pataki’s budget is going to promote high-tech projects and consumer tax breaks for saving on energy.

This is meaning tens of millions of dollars in new research funding.  Tax credits and other incentives could flow into Capital Region businesses under the proposed budget Gov. George Pataki unveiled Tuesday.  Up to $50 million over five years for advanced “clean coal” power plants could boost research in technology being conducted at General Electric’s Global Research Center in Niskayuna.

Good luck everyone and may this help green living in our economy.  However, clean coal is not as green as other technologies.
