SENATOR GOLDEN, SENATE FINANCE COMMITTEE MEMBER, VOTES TO CREATE A NEW YORK SPENDING CAP IN AN EFFORT TO TURN STATE’S ECONOMY AROUND

Albany- State Senator Martin J. Golden (R-C-I, Brooklyn), who last week was appointed as a member of the New York State Senate Finance Committee, today voted to support legislation (S. 1892) that would enact a two percent state spending cap.

This will be the third time that Senate Republicans have voted to pass a state spending cap that ensures New York spends no more than taxpayers can afford. The cap, which would be set at 2 percent or 120 percent of the CPI (currently 1.9 percent), whichever is lower, would ensure that the state reduces spending and lives within its budget, easing the burden on taxpayers.

STATEMENT BY SENATOR GOLDEN ON MAYOR BLOOMBERG’S FINANCIAL REFORM PROPOSAL

New York – State Senator Martin J. Golden (R-C-I, Brooklyn), a member of the Senate Finance Committee, has issued a statement in response to Mayor Bloomberg’s financial reform proposal as outlined in today’s State of the City Address:

 

“Mayor Michael Bloomberg highlighted the need to reduce the cost of government, and prevent tax increases, so to balance the City budget. This is a message of financial responsibility that will resonate with New Yorkers in each of our five boroughs because hardworking New Yorkers understand that tax increases make it less possible to live, work and raise a family here in New York.

2011 Job Creation & Taxpayer Protection Act

ALBANY, 01/19/11 – State Senator James L. Seward (R/C/I–Oneonta) today announced senate approval of the Job Creation and Taxpayer Protection Act of 2011, a three-part plan to encourage the creation of new private sector jobs and ensure fiscal responsibility through the enactment of a two percent state spending cap and requiring a two-thirds “super majority” vote to raise taxes. 

“These job-creating, cost cutting measures are exactly what New Yorkers are demanding,” said Senator Seward.  “Approving these bills to open the 2011 session sends a clear message that the senate shares the priorities of the people and is taking firm action to turn these goals into reality.”
