ALBANY, NY – Senator John W. Mannion (SD-50) today released the following statement:
"I appreciate the vision of a safe, healthy, and prosperous New York that Governor Hochul outlined in her State of the State address. I look forward to working together to address the pressing issues facing our state including a post-pandemic stabilization of our healthcare institutions, investing in workforce development and the infrastructure necessary to make the $100B Micron computer chip fab a success, affordability and lower taxes, and investing in our schools, teachers, and students.
“I am pleased to see the Governor prioritize housing costs and public safety in her speech. The housing crisis is a statewide concern that requires a comprehensive solution through the budget process. On the topic of public safety, I agree that a thoughtful approach is needed to address crime in our state. I will be closely reviewing the proposals put forward by the Governor - including $1B for mental health care - to ensure we are addressing the underlying issues and building a safer New York for all."
