More money is coming to the area Rochester and it's expected to help save nearly 300 jobs.
Lawmakers say the Rochester Laser Lab at the University of Rochester will receive more than $64 million. Senator Schumer says this will help keep Rochester in the forefront when it comes to laser technology. The lab gathers research and conducts experiments.
Officials tell News10NBC that if the lab did not receive the funding, it was possibly considering laying off scientists and engineers.
