I have a longstanding record of championing tax cuts -- both to provide relief to hardworking New Yorkers, and to create a better business climate for new job creation and economic growth.
That's why I'm pleased to announce that my Senate Republican colleagues and I have just issued an important new report that calls for New York's personal income taxes, business taxes, estate taxes and local property taxes to be reformed, simplified and reduced. The report also calls for a permanent two-percent state spending cap and dedicating surplus revenues to tax reductions.
The new report sends a loud and clear message that comprehensive tax relief will be a top priority for our Senate Republican Conference throughout the 2014 Legislative Session.

Overall, the tax-cutting recommendations outlined in the report will help to ensure a brighter, stronger and more prosperous future for New York State. Taken together, these measures will help make staying in New York not only more attractive -- but the preferred option -- for young New Yorkers, middle class families, senior citizens, and private sector businesses.
I will be sure to keep you posted on my efforts.
