FINCH ON BUDGET: WHERE’S THE RELIEF?
Assemblyman Gary D. Finch (R,C,I – Springport) today announced his concern over a lack of mandate relief and relief for Central New York families and businesses in the 2013-2014 Executive Budget.
“Creating jobs and making our region a more affordable place to live, work and start a family must be top priorities,” said Finch. “While I applaud Gov. Cuomo for his economic development initiatives, Central New York needs to start seeing the fruits of development projects already in the works. We must also do a better job of making New York State a more affordable place to own a business. By improving the state’s business climate, we can lay the foundation for a stronger economy and create good jobs.
“Finally, this budget lacked the type of transformative mandate relief that is needed to make real changes to the tax-and-spend culture of Albany and provide lasting relief to homeowners, our schools and Central New York’s municipalities.
“I look forward to working with my legislative colleagues from both sides of the aisle, as well as the governor, to provide the relief our homeowners and businesses need in the final state budget later this year.”
