Senate Adopts Pro-Family, Pro-Jobs Budget

 

ALBANY, 03/27/13 -- State Senator James L. Seward (R/C/I – Oneonta) today commented on final senate approval of the 2013-14 state budget: 

“The final state budget meets my central budget priorities – control spending, cut taxes and create jobs.  The fiscally responsible plan keeps state spending below the same two-percent cap placed on school districts and local governments while providing significant tax breaks for middle class families, small businesses and manufacturers.  

“I’m particularly pleased with the school aid portion of the budget.   The vast majority of new money, almost $1 billion, will go to low and average wealth schools that need help the most.
