Senator David Carlucci today unveiled a legislative package designed to preserve, promote and grow farming in New York State.
“It is not only essential that we work to actively promote our family farms, but that we also seek ways to make sure they continue to grow and prosper,” said Senator David Carlucci, (D-Rockland/ Orange), said. “This package of legislation will provide the tools needed to support our farmers, promote locally grown agricultural products and preserve our valuable farm land.”
The personal income tax surcharge is dead. It died at the end of March, when the Legislature approved a new state budget that did not extend it; a position supported by Senate Republicans and by Governor Cuomo.
I know I speak for my conference, for our constituents and for millions of taxpayers in this state who believe that cutting taxes to help businesses create jobs and help families make ends meet is the real moral imperative. Senate Republicans will not support any renewed efforts by the Assembly Democrats to extend the PIT surcharge.
