DeStefano Reacts to Hochul’s Budget Address

A Statement from Assemblyman Joe DeStefano (R,C,I-Medford)

“Gov. Hochul’s budget address was rather disappointing, vague and, yet again, left many of us searching for answers. One thing is clear, New York has a spending problem. Every year the budget grows larger and larger, without additional revenue sources. Instead of doling out money to illegals and overspending, we should focus on cutting taxes, eliminating policies and mandates that are suffocating our small businesses and focus on making life more affordable. Inflation rates have reached a 40-year high, and New Yorkers need help. As a state, New York needs to take proactive measures to combat the rising cost of inflation that is harming our residents.”
