Gallahan: Taxes and Crime are Out of Control

A Statement from Assemblyman Jeff Gallahan (R,C-Manchester)

“I am outraged by this year’s state budget. Taxes and crime are out of control, and this bloated budget will do nothing constructive to remedy this problem. New Yorkers do not feel safe—judges are given too little discretion and are unable to do their jobs properly, and in addition, law enforcement and district attorney offices are underfunded. New Yorkers do not feel financially secure—rising taxes and a cost of living that no one can feasibly live off of has landed New York families in hot water. This is ridiculous and should not be tolerated in future budgets.”
