Senator Griffo Reacts to Governor Cuomo's 2014-15 Budget Address

Following Gov. Cuomo's budget unveiling, Sen. Joseph A. Griffo offered the following comment: 

“The governor’s budget starts off with a good premise. We’re going to control spending. We’re going to cut taxes. And we’re going to invest in economic opportunity and education.

“So now we’ll have the opportunity to delve into all these details, to examine the document, to moderate where we want to based on deliberations and some of the conversations with our constituents back home. There will be a number of hearings. But overall, I think we’re moving in the right direction and I’m encouraged by many of the elements that have funding.

Senator Young's Reaction to Governor Cuomo's 2014-15 State Budget Proposal

For Release: Immediate, January 21, 2014 

            Jobs and economic opportunities are paramount, and the Governor’s focus on making New York a more affordable place to live and work is right on target.  Many of his proposals to make our state’s economy more competitive mirror the Senate’s initiatives.  Manufacturing jobs especially drive the Upstate economy, and reducing manufacturing and small business taxes and eliminating utility taxes on employers and residential consumers are key.

            Property tax relief continues to be a top concern of my constituents, and the Governor spoke extensively about reducing the suffocating property tax burden, which is something I fully support.  I look forward to fully analyzing the specifics of his proposals through upcoming budget hearings.

STATEMENT ON 2014-2015 EXECUTIVE BUDGET

The 2014-2015 State Budget address delivered today by Governor Cuomo puts New York State in a great position to build upon the work we have done in recent years to control spending, cut taxes and invest in initiatives that create new jobs and revitalize our economy. 

Working together, we have put a stop to the decades of late and unbalanced budgets by passing three consecutive early budgets.  I am hopeful that this year we can continue that trend. 

It was two years ago when Senate Republicans led the fight to pass a property tax cap that helped to rein in burdensome property taxes and reduced middle-class tax rates to their lowest levels in 60 years.  This year, I’m eager to provide continued tax relief to hardworking New Yorkers by making the property tax cap and middle-class tax cuts permanent. 

In addition, it’s also key that we work to continue to cut red tape and foster an environment that enables businesses to expand and create jobs. In order to do so, we should work to eliminate corporate taxes for manufacturers and do away with the onerous energy tax surcharge to promote business growth.
