Senate Republicans Unveil “Rescue New York” 2023 Legislative Agenda

“Rescue New York” 2023 Legislative Agenda
A Plan for a New York that is safer, stronger, more affordable, and more free for everyone

ALBANY, NY — The New York State Senate Republican Conference today announced its “Rescue New York” 2023 legislative agenda. The agenda includes a broad range of common-sense policies to reverse the alarming consequences of One-Party Rule, including a drastic decline in public safety, a depleted workforce, high taxes, business-crippling regulations, record inflation and increased costs of goods, and nation-leading population loss.

The “Rescue New York” 2023 Legislative Agenda is a comprehensive plan to improve public safety, ease the financial burden on middle-class families and small business owners, and restore the quality of life in communities throughout New York State. Components of the Rescue New York plan focus on:

A Safer New York

  • Restore common sense to our criminal justice system to prevent crime and protect New Yorkers;
  • Increase efforts and investments to end the opioid and mental health epidemics; and
  • Support and protect our seniors.

A Stronger New York

  • Expand economic opportunity and strengthen our workforce;
  • Invest in infrastructure for the 21st century; and
  • Help our veterans and military families thrive.

A More Affordable New York

  • Cut the Empire State’s highest-in-the-nation tax burden and control government spending;
  • Reduce the cost of living for families and all residents;
  • Improve New York’s worst-in-the-nation business climate; and
  • Enact climate policies that ensure access to affordable, reliable, and clean energy.

A More Free New York

  • Provide a high quality education to all students;
  • Uphold the rights of New Yorkers; and
  • Restore accountability in State government.

“The Governor and Albany Democrats continue to ignore that New Yorkers are fleeing this State in record numbers. High taxes; exploding crime; runaway inflation threaten our families safety and prosperity and our freedoms. Our Republican conference will fight for you and your families. Our 2023 Rescue New York Plan addresses the issues that mean most to families just trying to get by while the costs of everything from groceries to gas and home heating fuels keep piling on. Long Islanders and all New Yorkers need relief now. Our vision for a safer, stronger, more affordable, and more free New York will restore balance and common sense to our state government. I am eager to roll-up my sleeves to put all New Yorkers first with this common sense agenda, get our state back on the right path, and deliver real results for the great people of the Empire State,” said Senator Steven D. Rhoads.
