2013 - 2014 New York State Budget

Dear Neighbors,Working in a bipartisan fashion, we have enacted an on-time State Budget.  While that’s good news, the even better news is that it is a soundly balanced, fiscally responsible budget that will control spending, cut taxes and keep New York State moving in the right direction. From the start of the budget negotiation process, my main objective was simple -- to help put money back into your pocket so that you can more easily balance your family’s household budget. Another key objective was helping our small businesses, in order to strengthen our economy and create new jobs in our community.The new budget achieves both of these important goals.
