CANTON — Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo is expected to sign Start-Up New York legislation into law Wednesday at SUNY Canton.

The initiative was passed Friday by the state Legislature.

The Start-Up program will establish tax-free zones on SUNY and select private college campuses. Businesses that set up shop in a tax-free zone will be exempt from corporate, property and sales tax for 10 years. Employees working at businesses in the tax-free zones will not have to pay income taxes for five years.

Invitations from the governor’s office for his appearance have been issued to several St. Lawrence County leaders.
