Senator State Joseph Griffo is concerned about the amount of funding allocated to tackle Lyme disease and other tick-borne diseases in New York State.
Griffo has sent a letter to say that the Department of Health Commissioner Howard Zucker is addressing his concerns.
He says that despite cases of Lyme disease and other tick-borne diseases rising steadily, the new state budget that put Democrats aside set almost $ 1 million less than last year.
Griffo says that the loss of funding will hamper efforts to prevent diseases from ticketing.
"The risk of illnesses carried forward continues to grow across New York State," said Deputy Leader of Griffo Minorities. "I am always concerned about the impact of a reduction in funding on our efforts to address this issue and will continue to support the funding and resources we need to tackle this significant problem.
