Today, on a tour of the American Rock Salt mine, Representative Kathy Hochul (NY-26) met with company leadership to discuss what can be done to create new, good-paying jobs in Western New York.
"I am proud to have businesses like American Rock Salt here in Western New York. This company has had a profound economic effect on the region -- in addition to employing over 200 people; they also generate jobs in the trucking, rail, and construction industries. I will continue to work to ensure our local businesses have the support necessary to grow and create jobs in our region," Rep. Hochul said.
American Rock Salt is the largest producing salt mine in the United States and employs over 200 people, making it one of Livingston County's top employers.
Support for local business is a pillar of both Hochul's Revitalizing our Economy through Business, Infrastructure, and Local Development (REBUILD) Western New York plan and Make It In America plan.
