Governor Andrew Cuomo stopped by Syracuse Thursday to help wrap up a three-day convention on unmanned aviation systems, or drones, that attracted companies from across the nation and beyond. He used the opportunity to commit $30 million in additional funding to expand drone testing in the region.
Cuomo made his intentions clear when he began his remarks to hundreds of attendees at the Oncenter.
"I'm here because I want you and this industry located in Central New York," Cuomo said to applause. "That doesn't just happen by chance."
