Senator Ken LaValle: “Cautiously Optimistic” of Measures Proposed by Governor

Release date: January 21, 2015

 

“In today’s State-of-the-State/Budget address, I was cautiously optimistic of some of the fiscal measures being proposed by Governor Cuomo to save taxpayers money.” 

 “While my preferred methods differ in many instances from the Governor’s proposals, we generally agree that we need to make New York more affordable for families. I would like to see the ceiling raised so additional Long Island families would benefit by having their taxes limited.”

STATEMENT BY SENATOR GOLDEN ON THE MTA FARE HIKE

"The Metropolitan Transit Authority has once again misstepped in approving a plan that digs deeper into the pockets of straphangers and motorists. I am greatly disappointed by the MTA Board’s vote to increase the base fare for those who travel our subways, buses and bridges. As I said when I spoke at the Brooklyn MTA fare hearing, we are again being asked to pay more to travel throughout our City. I encourage transit riders to strongly look into the bonus and discount plans that are available so that they can get more, dollar for dollar, in transportation services.
