Blankenbush Vote Gives North Country Families Tax Breaks

Statement on Special Session from Assemblyman Ken Blankenbush (R,C,I-Black River)
December 8, 2011

“While the middle-income tax cuts are a nice boost for many North Country families, I am concerned that New York still has not learned how to control its spending. Now we need to go a step further, and make a serious effort to reform and reduce spending so that we can begin to permanently lower taxes.

“Legislators need to cap New York’s outrageous spending and enact unfunded mandate relief for our schools and local governments. Removing New York’s dependency on high taxes will benefit everyone from families, farms, small businesses and manufacturers.”
