Texas Governor Rick Perry is visiting New York City this week.
He says he hopes to convince businesses to move to his state.
Governor Perry’s visit comes as Governor Andrew Cuomo continues to advertise his Start-Up New York program in Texas.
Governor Cuomo hosted a conference of local planning committees on Wednesday in Albany, as part of New York Rising.
That program is focused on reconstruction after Superstorm Sandy, Hurricane Irene and Tropical Storm Lee.
The Towns of Schoharie, Middleburgh and Windham will all get federal funding for flood reconstruction.
Also, the Village of Waterford won an award for developing software to identify areas at high risk for flooding.
