Assemblyman Dave McDonough speaks with Governor Andrew Cuomo on Monday, December 12, 2011, shortly after Cuomo signed a package of job-growth legislation into law which rolls back the MTA payroll tax.
“I was proud to join Governor Cuomo and my Long Island colleagues for the signing of this long-overdue legislation,” said McDonough. “The repeal and reduction of the MTA payroll tax is especially important to Long Island. Senator Fuschillo, Senate Majority Leader Skelos and I have repeatedly called for the end of this job-killing tax. The reduction of the MTA payroll tax signals an opportunity for local businesses to put more of their hard-earned money toward investment, expansion and hiring, and indicates that Albany is finally getting serious about economic growth.”
