Time for Albany to Respond to Real Needs

Senator Oberacker joins Senate Republican colleagues to announce Rescue New York legislative agenda

ALBANY – 01/09/22 – Senator Peter Oberacker (R/C-Schenevus) today joined members of the Senate Republican Conference to announce their “Rescue New York” 2023 legislative agenda. The agenda includes a broad range of common-sense policies to reverse the alarming consequences of One-Party Rule, including a drastic decline in public safety, a depleted workforce, high taxes, business-crippling regulations, record inflation and increased costs of goods, and nation-leading population loss.

“We are losing people at a record pace, inflation is wreaking havoc on household budgets, and public safety concerns are widespread,” said Senator Oberacker.  “It is time to reverse the damage done over the last several years thanks to one party rule in Albany and deliver crucial changes that people deserve.  Government needs to be accountable to real concerns and our 2023 Rescue New York agenda meets that fundamental demand.”

The “Rescue New York” 2023 Legislative Agenda is a comprehensive plan to improve public safety, ease the financial burden on middle-class families and small business owners, and restore the quality of life in communities throughout New York State. Components of the Rescue New York plan focus on:

  • A Safer New York 

    • Restore common sense to our criminal justice system to prevent crime and protect New Yorkers;
    • Increase efforts and investments to end the opioid and mental health epidemics; and
    • Support and protect our seniors.
  • A Stronger New York 
    • Expand economic opportunity and strengthen our workforce;
    • Invest in infrastructure for the 21st century; and
    • Help our veterans and military families thrive.
  • A More Affordable New York
    • Cut the Empire State’s highest-in-the-nation tax burden and control government spending;
