Griffo Says Senate Plan Emphasizes Job Creation & Fiscal Responsibility
(Albany)- Senator Joseph A. Griffo (R-C-IP, Rome) said today that the State Senate passed its 2012-13 Senate Budget resolution that aims to control state spending, avoid new taxes, fees and unfunded mandates and helps create new jobs.
The Senate budget, at just under $132.5 billion, keeps the total state spending increase below two percent, and spends slightly less than the Executive Budget. The budget closes a $2 billion budget deficit and builds on last year’s successes in putting the state’s fiscal house in order.
