Giglio Statement on Budget Negotiations

April 3, 2008
The ability to pass an on-time budget hit a considerable roadblock with the transition to a new governor. However, it is important that we remain committed to passing a budget that meets the needs of middle-class families and small businesses throughout the Southern Tier. Late Wednesday, we were able to provide important funding to provide law enforcement with the tools they need to keep our streets safe. As the end of the process nears, be assured that I will continue to be a strong advocate for the residents of the 149th Assembly District.
