“I have been absolutely clear in my opposition to the MTA Payroll Tax, and have sponsored legislation to immediately end this unacceptable tax burden that has crippled Hudson Valley businesses and residents for too long.

Enjoy New York State Apples

The autumn season is a great time to take advantage of some of the best things the Empire State has to offer, including fall foliage, football and apple farms.

Did you know that New York is the #2 apple producer in the country? Or that New York grows more varieties of apples than any other state?

There are over 600 apple orchards around the state offering a variety of apple products, including cider, doughnuts, wine and, of course, apples. To find the nearest u-pick orchard, visit www.nyapplecountry.com/pick.php.

I encourage all New Yorkers (and tourists!) to visit a local apple orchard this autumn. It’s great family fun, great for our health and a great way to support for our local farmers.
