New York has become the first state in the nation to pass its own UGRR Freedom Trail Act, designed to support the proposed National Park Service Underground Railroad Project. The bill was ceremonially signed into law by Governor George Pataki on October 30, 1997 at the Michigan Avenue Baptist Church, the most significant UGRR site in Buffalo. The bill was sponsored by Deputy Assembly Speaker Arthur O. Eve of Buffalo, and Senator Dale Volker of Depew.
