Chairman Crowley Statement on Governor Cuomo’s Budget Proposal
(Washington, D.C.) – House Democratic Caucus Chairman Joe Crowley (D-NY) issued the following statement on Governor Cuomo’s budget proposal:
“The Republican-devised tax law will devastate New York. It will leave our families and middle-class workers deprived of the resources they need to start a business, buy a home, and save for their future. I welcome Governor Cuomo’s full-throated offensive against this Republican attack on our state. His commonsense plan to seek out reforms for state revenues will help ensure that New York can keep its promise to her citizens and that our state will continue to be a leader in business, education, and innovation.
“And, at a time when Republicans and President Trump are advancing a divisive agenda attempted to divide us, the 'Tax Fairness for All' campaign is just the kind of leadership we need. We have a great responsibility to fight for everyday Americans, and Governor Cuomo's budget does just that.”
