With his emphasis on job creation, boosting our state’s economy, rebuilding our infrastructure, strengthening our public schools and providing relief to hardworking taxpayers, Governor Cuomo touched on a number of issues that are critically important to the region I represent.

Events of recent months prove just how fragile is the progress we’ve made to strengthen our economy, and a reminder of the need to redouble our efforts to create new and better opportunity for people of this region.

Senator Bill Larkin (R-39th District) responded to Governor Cuomo’s State of the State Address today by highlighting plans that he and his colleagues in the Republican lead Senate have already acted upon and will address as the legislative session continues. 

Senator Larkin recently helped pass two important reforms designed to improve the way state government operates. The reforms include a cap on state spending and term limits for legislative leadership posts and committee chairs.
