HAMBURG, N.Y. -- Just south of the Ford Plant on Route 5 is one of the biggest construction sites in Western New York.
Workers are busy building a regional distribution center for FedEx. The warehouse will be 317,000 square feet, and FedEx will employee between 400 and 600 workers. The total cost is more than $50 million.
But State Senator Marc Panepinto (D-60th District) says it's not as good as it sounds.
"I think it's a bad deal," Panepinto said at a news conference outside the Hamburg Industrial Development Agency (IDA).
Panepinto is critical of the tax breaks it took to lure FedEx to hamburg.
