STATEMENT BY SENATOR CARLUCCI REGARDING MILLIONAIRE’S TAX

“ I support the millionaire’s tax to provide relief for New York middle class families in these tough economic times.  Going forward we have to ensure that any additional revenue generated goes to restoring cuts, not adding additional spending. 

I’m also eager to get back to Albany to make sure we repeal the onerous, job-killing MTA payroll tax that is crushing our small businesses here in Rockland and Orange counties.

I look forward to working with  Governor Cuomo to ensure that we make New York more affordable for homeowners while finding ways to grow our economy and create jobs."

Remembering Pearl Harbor

 

State Senator Hugh T. Farley (R, C, I - Schenectady) asks constituents to bow their heads in a few moments of silence on December 7th, in honor of Pearl Harbor Day.

 

"It was on that day in 1941 that Japanese planes attacked the United States in Hawaii, killing some 2,000 Americans," Senator Farley said. "Unfortunately, over the years, some may have forgotten what that day meant and how President Franklin Roosevelt was right when he said it will live in infamy. As we continue to fight in the War on Terrorism and have military loved ones overseas during the holidays, we must remember our fallen brothers and sisters who have given their lives for this Country."
