Senator Tom Croci Touts “Brighter Future” Budget Plan as the Perfect Remedy to Get New York Back on Track

Senate Plan Creates New Property Tax Rebate for Middle-Class Homeowners, Extends Historic Opportunities to Students, Invests in NY’s Infrastructure to Create Good-Paying Jobs

Senator Tom Croci is pleased to report that the State Senate is moving the State Budget process forward with a soundly balanced, fiscally responsible plan that will cut taxes, control spending, and build a brighter future for 3RD Senate District residents and all New Yorkers.

The New York State Senate one-house budget resolution calls for significant property tax relief to help hardworking New Yorkers, regionally balanced funding to help create good jobs, and important infrastructure investments to help rebuild the State’s economy.  Furthermore, it invests in the future of our students by increasing education aid and completely eliminating the GEA.

“Long Islanders have earned the right to be prosperous and successful, and the Senate budget plan provides my constituents the tax relief, job opportunities, and critical investments they need to build a brighter future for themselves and their families,” said Senator Croci.  “It invests in the future of our students by increasing education aid and completely eliminating the GEA, which was a promise I made to my constituents when I was elected.  The more aid we can send from Albany back to our schools, the less our school districts need to raise in property taxes.  This fiscally responsible spending plan should serve as a blueprint for enacting another on-time State budget for the fifth year in a row.”
