Gov. Andrew Cuomo is calling for New York state to spend another $125 billion on infrastructure improvement projects over the next five years.
The Democratic governor announced Tuesday the proposal would be the next phase in his agenda to rebuild the state of New York and create thousands of middle-class jobs.
According to the governor, the $125 billion in spending would include state and federal funding as well as relying on the private sector to improve roads, bridges and mass transit systems.
New York state is currently in the middle of a $100 billion infrastructure initiative that includes ongoing upgrades to the New York City subway system.
