Statement From Senate Majority Conference Leader John L. Sampson

June 14, 2010

To give New York a fair and responsible budget we must continue to put partisanship aside and find common solutions to the crisis we all face.
Today, with our colleagues from across the aisle, we met our obligation and passed the emergency appropriation to protect and preserve essential services for all New Yorkers.
I would like to thank my Democratic Majority colleagues, as well as Senators Hugh Farley, Charles Fuschillo, and Roy McDonald for demonstrating the courage and leadership New Yorkers deserve from their elected representatives during these difficult times.
