Senator O'Mara joined WHCU's Lee Rayburn on the radio earlier this morning to discuss the Senate's "Blueprint for Jobs" plan with a focus on revitalizing New York State's manufacturing sector and devoting some special attention to our returning servicemen and servicewomen through a Hire-A-Vet tax credit -- each of which O'Mara has been pushing throughout the 2013 legislative session.

This morning's interview also included a brief update on state budget negotiations -- including comments on the Senate's and Assembly's rejection of Governor Andrew Cuomo's proposed six-percent, across-the-board reduction and fully restoring $120 million to the state Office of People with Developmental Disabilities (OPWDD) to continue state assistance to programs and services for people with developmental disabilities.
