Governor Cuomo Signs Legislation to Correct the Spelling of the Verrazzano-Narrows Bridge

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today signed legislation (S.9089/A.2963-B) to correct the spelling of the Verrazzano-Narrows Bridge.

The name of this bridge has been spelled incorrectly for several decades, and this legislation will correct the spelling of the Verrazzano-Narrows bridge in a number of respective state statutes by adding the missing "z" to the name.
