Local firm supports vets’ contract legislation

An agreement has been reached on legislation to send 6 percent of state contracts to service-disabled, veteran-owned small businesses.

It was announced Thursday by Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo and other key legislative leaders at a Veterans and Military Families summit, which included promoting and growing businesses owned by disabled veterans.

“Undeniably, Thursday’s agreement regarding a 6 percent state contract set aside for SDVOSBs is a game changing development for Tully Rinckey PLLC and other SDVOSBs across the state,” said Greg T. Rinckey, a partner in the Albany-based law firm Tully Rinckey PLLC.

Tully Rinckey, which has offices in Rochester and Syracuse, is a statewide SDVOSB, longstanding member of the National Veteran-Owned Small Business Administration and an employer representing every branch of the United States military. The firm has actively supported the proposal.

The firm’s founding partner, Mathew B. Tully, was seriously injured in 2012 while serving as an Army combat arms officer in Afghanistan. He was awarded the Purple Heart for actions he took that led to his injuries. Rinckey, the firm’s managing partner, also suffered service-connected injuries prior to being honorably discharged from the Army Judge Advocate General’s Corps in 2004.
