Senator Jordan comments on Governor Cuomo’s 2019 State of the State Address and 2019-20 Executive Budget Presentation

“Taxpayers are hurting and continue leaving New York in record numbers. It’s not because of the weather, but due to our high taxes, crushing high cost of living and lack of good-paying jobs, especially upstate. I didn’t hear enough from the Governor today about an agenda that will reverse this destructive trend. We need a positive, forward-looking agenda to help small businesses, cut red tape, deliver real tax relief and get our upstate economy moving again. In the days ahead, I’ll carefully review the Governor’s budget and work to advance my affordability agenda so people can stop saying ‘I leave New York’ and starting saying ‘I love New York’.”
