Senator Dean Skelos gives the GOP response to Governor David Paterson's State of the State Address

Senator Dean Skelos: State of the State response 1/6/09

In his State of the State message Governor Paterson said that New York faces an enormous fiscal crisis.

He’s right.

New York, like other states, has been hit hard by the economic recession, forcing you and other families to make sacrifices in order to make ends meet.

Albany must now do the same.

Governor Paterson talked a lot about fiscal restraint, but we’ve heard that speech before.

Statement from Senator Catharine Young regarding State of the State

 “It is heartening that Governor Paterson focused on ethics, fiscal responsibility and jobs.

 I was pleased to hear the Governor speak of a spending cap to get out-of-control spending in line.  Albany has to rein in irresponsible behavior, and a spending cap is a good first step.  My conference passed a spending cap before New York City took control of the Senate last year, and currently, I have a petition drive to contain reckless spending.  We need to push the Assembly to pass it too, to finally help our hardworking, overburdened taxpayers.

Statement From Senate Majority Conference Leader John L. Sampson

New Yorkers are angry and so am I. The people want statesmen to fix our problems, not politicians who ascribe blame without offering a solution. For decades, the Senate spent, borrowed, and taxed New York into fiscal crisis, and now millions of families have reached their breaking point, unable to survive more of the same old pass-the-buck politics. Throughout our first year in the Majority, we transformed the Senate into a more bipartisan and functional chamber, tackled shady public authorities, and built a new tier in the retirement system to save taxpayers billions.

STATEMENT BY SENATOR JOHN BONACIC ON GOVERNOR PATERSON'S STATE OF THE STATE ADDRESS

“I believe now, the Governor wants to do the things he says. He is right to argue that better ethics can lead to better policies. I support his ethics reform proposal. If no Senator in the Democratic Senate Majority sponsors it when it is released, I will sponsor it, because I believe these ideas deserve an honest debate.”
