Budget funds to create logger training program

Last Updated by Matt Ryan on

It seems like a long time now, with the arrest of Dean Skelos and the ascension of new Senate Majority Leader John Flanagan, but the state budget passed just seven short weeks ago. We've heard a lot about the new teacher evaluation plan, school aid and ethics reforms but this week on New York NOW we'll take a look at what a small fraction of the $142 billion spending plan is helping create - a logger training program.

It's a career field that is getting smaller, while the demand is getting bigger. Watch our report on how the state is trying to fix that problem (story begins at 19:43).

Here are some photos of us on our shoot locations in Wilton (Saratoga County) and Paul Smith's College.
