Senator Valesky Says "No" to Beverage Tax; Will Fight to Save Jobs

SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- State Sen. David J. Valesky (D-Oneida) today led a rally of beverage industry workers against Governor Paterson’s proposed 50 percent tax on soda and other drinks.

“This tax will eliminate jobs and increase costs for families on tight budgets,” Sen. Valesky said. “It is simply not the right approach for addressing our state’s budget problems.”

Statement From Senate Majority Conference Leader John L. Sampson

After 40 years of bad budget decisions by Senate Republicans, today's economic news is no surprise. Our economy is in shambles, regular people cannot find good paying jobs, and with diminished revenues critical services are now at risk. Senate Democrats campaigned on change, and we believe there is a better way.  We will get spending under control, invest in targeted property tax relief, and protect the safety net more New Yorkers are relying on in these difficult times.
