"I thought this was an interesting speech - a lot of exciting initiatives and ideas that have been proposed, mainly focusing on jobs, our economy and tax relief, investing in education. Paying attention to the needs of upstate New York - particularly Central New York and the north country is going to be very important - looking at helping regulatory reform and zero tax for small manufacturers. The I-98 proposal being considered in the north country is, I think, going to be very important. Finally, we get the study. Because transportation is a significant part of economic development. "So, overall, a lot of ideas and initiatives that are worthy of our consideration and examination. And when the budget comes out, we'll delve into this all. I'm hoping for a successful session."
