Albany… You’re Fired!

June 28, 2010

The NYS Legislature is playing dangerous politics with the lives of the voters in New York when it refused to return to Albany to finish the budget deal. The Legislature refused to enter an “extraordinary session” because technically they have been in extraordinary session for months. This game is appalling and voters need to call out their legislators on this disgusting political show.

The legislature has voted against several key proposals by the Governors office that are in the best interest of businesses and in turn New Yorkers. Paterson proposed allowing grocery stores the ability to sell wine giving grocery stores a new income stream, and the state more tax revenue.

Another proposal was to cap the growth of local property taxes, including school taxes. Ill say that again, your elected representatives SAID NO to capping property taxes. Paterson and legislators agreed on a temporary reinstatement on clothing tax.

Paterson says there is $400 million in unfunded spending in the legislatures budget.
