Skoufis Secures Tax Relief for Hudson Valley Families, Historic Investments in Infrastructure, Schools, Parks in State Budget

Senator James Skoufis (D-Hudson Valley) was laser-focused on delivering a final budget that delivered for his constituents by putting money back in their pockets, protecting our quality of life, and getting the Hudson Valley its fair share of dollars. Skoufis touted numerous wins for local families in the final budget, set for adoption on Friday. Following months of negotiations between lawmakers and the Governor, the balanced budget features several key provisions Skoufis fought for, including:

“Our state budget makes key investments where it matters: in our communities, our families, our small businesses, and our care economy,” said Senator Skoufis. “Like in any budget, there are offensive provisions, such as the bad deal that is the Buffalo Bills stadium. That's why I championed an audit of so-called economic development spending that will finally shed a light on the wasteful spending that often occurs. As we emerge from the pandemic, we must chart a smarter path forward – I'll always continue to put my Hudson Valley constituents first and ensure we get our fair share from the State Legislature."
