Palumbo Frustrated With Assembly Majority Tax-And-Spend Culture

Statement from Assemblyman Anthony Palumbo (R,C,I,Ref-New Suffolk)
March 13, 2019

“Today the Assembly Majority released its one-house budget wish list that increases spending and slaps an additional $5.7 billion in taxes on struggling New Yorkers. While I am pleased to see the restoration of the Extreme Winter Recovery Fund, Aid and Incentives to Municipalities (AIM) funding, as well as funding to address Water Infrastructure projects throughout New York, I am frustrated with the tax-and-spend culture coming from New York City Majority members. We are losing New Yorkers to other states at an alarming rate, and I fear that if residents already have one foot out the door, another tax increase just kicked them completely out the door.”
