Cuomo vetoes bill offering credits to farmers who donate food | The Daily Gazette: At a time when demand on food pantries remains heavy, advocates are decrying Gov. Andrew Cuomo's decision to veto a bill that would have established a new tax credit for farmers who donate food.
New York Farm Bureau said it is "profoundly disappointed" by the veto, saying the legislation would have encouraged farmers to donate to food pantries and food banks that provide food to the needy.
The bill had passed the state Legislature unanimously.
