Wednesday, Gov. Cuomo issued a proclamation to call an extraordinary session in Albany to pass all 53 local tax extenders in order to protect county budgets and an agreement to increase State and Municipal Facilities Funding (SAM) by $13.5 million. The SAM funding was increased by $6.8 million for Chautauqua, Cattaraugus and Allegany counties for damages sustained from the July 2015 flooding.
