Norris: Progressive Agenda Dominates Gov.’S Budget Plan

A Statement from Assemblyman Mike Norris (R,I,C,Ref-Lockport)

Though I support cutting taxes for the middle class and making the property tax cap permanent, enacting the Child Victims Act once and for all, investing in our state’s infrastructure, and reforming how our state government works, I was discouraged that the governor continued to focus his agenda on accommodating progressive and downstate interests. He didn’t talk about reducing our state’s debt or cutting spending, which drives up everyone’s taxes. These issues must be at the forefront as we continue negotiating a final state budget.
