State Sen. Ball questions Cuomo's high-tech jobs plan

State Sen. Greg Ball (R-N.Y.) is questioning Gov. Andrew Cuomo's (D-N.Y.) plan to bring hundreds of jobs to Westchester County through a deal with several high-tech companies.

The senator was in Yorktown today saying that Cuomo's commitment to IBM to provide $400 million in state incentives to create hundreds of jobs has to be more than just words.

Ball points to a $45 million state commitment back in 2008 to keep jobs at the IBM facility in East Fishkill. A year later, hundreds were laid off there.

The state senator says he also sent a letter to Cuomo asking him to get a commitment from IBM before the state commits its money.
