Statement on State of the State

 


Albany, NY – State Senator Michael H. Ranzenhofer has issued the following statement in response to Governor Cuomo’s State of the State Address:


“Today, the Governor’s State of the State address echoed opinions of so many New Yorkers, including myself – especially for the State to close the budget deficit, impose a property-tax cap, and create private-sector jobs. 


I have been an outspoken advocate and introduced legislation on many of these issues during my first term and I am pleased to hear the Governor make them his major legislative priorities.  More importantly, New Yorkers have been demanding property tax relief and a smaller and leaner State government over the past few years as well. 


As the 2011 Legislative Session begins, the Governor and Legislature have an opportunity to turn our State’s fiscal and economic future around.  I am eager to begin working with the Governor and my Senate and Assembly colleagues during the 2011 Legislative Session.”
