McGowan on One-House Budget

A statement from Assemblyman John McGowan (R,C-Rockland)

“The Assembly Majority One-House Budget Proposal is an offense to New York taxpayers. Their priorities are not aligned with the needs of New Yorkers. They once again failed to address our unified concerns of safety and community well-being and found ways to further increase the tax burden on constituents.

“I will not support a budget that misplaces state residents’ priorities and wastefully spends. It is unfair to New Yorkers for crime to continue to be ignored, small businesses to remain unsupported and additional fees to be added to their already increasing taxes. The final budget should reflect the needs of the people of this state and find ways to reduce spending and taxes. Until then, New York will continue taking leaps backward if this tradition continues.”
