BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s 2014-15 spending plan contains $15 million to plan for a new College of Emergency Preparedness, Homeland Security and Cybersecurity.

The new college would be part of the State University of New York system.

The initial $15 million proposed by the governor Tuesday would go toward initial planning and development costs.

Cuomo also included $8 million in his proposal to fund SUNY or CUNY college scholarships for the top 10 percent of high school graduates who pursue a career in science, technology, engineering or math - known as STEM - and agree to work in New York for five years.

The governor also has set aside an additional $10 million to fund initial planning for a new pharmacy school at Binghamton University.
