LEGISLATIVE  RESOLUTION  commemorating  the  40th Anniversary of the New
York State Tug Hill Commission to be celebrated May 30, 2013

WHEREAS, Organizations which serve the interest of the  people  of  this
Empire State merit the commendation of this Legislative Body; and
  WHEREAS, This Legislative Body is justly proud to commemorate the 40th
Anniversary  of the New York State Tug Hill Commission, to be celebrated
at the Beeches in Rome, New York, on Thursday, May 30, 2013; and
  WHEREAS, The need for the New York State  Tug  Hill  Commission  arose
from local concerns that development of the region's remote, core forest
would damage the region's environment, economy, and its way of life; and
  WHEREAS,  The New York State Tug Hill Commission first met in 1973; it
is governed by nine local Commissioners from the Tug Hill  towns  chosen
by  the  Governor,  President  Pro Tem of the Senate, and Speaker of the
Assembly to represent the Region; and
  WHEREAS, The New York State Tug Hill Commission has worked with the 62
towns  and  villages  of  the  Tug  Hill  region  in  natural   resource
protection,  land use planning, economic development, downtown revitali-
zation and related fields; and
  WHEREAS, Several other pieces of State legislation that recognize  the
Tug  Hill  region and its importance include the Tug Hill Reserve Act of
1992, and the Tug Hill Conservation Easement Act of 1998; and
  WHEREAS, Today, the Commission works through five councils of  govern-
ments  that  include  most of the towns and villages in the region; each
council employs a circuit rider cooperatively  as  a  means  of  helping
member communities work together, and draw on the services of Commission
staff based out of Watertown, New York; and
  WHEREAS,  The New York State Tug Hill Commission has served the inter-
ests of the people of the Empire State for 40 years; and
  WHEREAS, In so effectively carrying out  its  mission,  the  New  York
State  Tug  Hill  Commission has demonstrated the value of its services;
and
  WHEREAS, It is the sense of this Legislative Body  that  when  commis-
sions  of  such noble aims and accomplishments are brought to our atten-
tion, they should be celebrated and recognized by all  the  citizens  of
this great Empire State; now, therefore, be it
  RESOLVED,  That  this  Legislative  Body pause in its deliberations to
commemorate the 40th Anniversary of the New York State Tug Hill  Commis-
sion; and be it further
  RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to the New York State Tug Hill Commission.
