This week the Senate Majority released a mid-year economic and revenue forecast for New York State. A copy of the report can be found at the Senate website, www.nysenate.gov.
Working together this year, with Governor Cuomo, we were able to close a $10 billion budget deficit. We balenced the budget by finding efficiencies in government, identifying areas to make responsible cuts in spending, and most importantly, held the line on taxes," said Senator Gallivan. "Significant challenges remain and I look forward to returning to Albany to address next year's budget, continuing to focus on fiscal responsibility, economic development, and job creation for Western New York."
“For too long New York has lacked a comprehensive economic development strategy that reflects our state’s true economic and regional diversity. The newly created “regional economic development councils” will bring stakeholders from across the Western New York and Finger Lakes regions together to provide local expertise, insight, and know-how to the process -- ensuring that the residents of Erie, Wyoming, Livingston and Ontario Counties will have a strong voice in the discussion about the future of our community.
I applaud each of the Council’s appointees, and look forward to working hand-in-hand with them to attract jobs, grow our economy, and improve the region’s quality of life."
