News Release from Assembyman Dan Burling
Assemblyman Dan Burling (R,C-Warsaw) joined with Senator Pat Gallivan (R,C,I- 59th District) to sponsor and pass a bill honoring the veterans of Western New York by renaming a portion of Route 20A, running from State Route 98 to State Route 246, as the “Wyoming County Veterans Memorial Highway.” This bill was signed into law by Governor Cuomo on July 3.
"As a Vietnam Veteran and member of the Assembly Veterans' Affairs Committee, I am proud of this important designation that will recognize the many servicemen and women who have faithfully and honorably fought for our country and protected our freedom. I am pleased to have worked with Senator Pat Gallivan on this permanent memorial for our veterans and thank Governor Cuomo for signing this legislation into law so quickly," said Burling.
Burling added: “Supporting our local veterans has been one of my main goals as the 147th district’s assemblyman. I am proud to have served the veterans of Wyoming, Livingston, Genesee and Allegany counties over the last 14 years. It is an honor to end my final legislative session by commemorating the servicemen and women who have so selflessly given to this great nation and our Western New York communities.”
