Butler Backs Important Tax Breaks, Flood Relief For Working Upstate Families

Statement on Special Session from Assemblyman Marc W. Butler (R,C,I-Newport)
December 8, 2011

“I’m pleased with the tax breaks meant to support working families, especially for those in Upstate New York. Upstate taxpayers have carried a heavy burden and any relief we can provide is a step in a positive direction.

“Additionally, I am happy to see continued support and assistance to flood victims in my district and other regions that were badly impacted by Tropical Storm Irene.

“We’re not done with our work. I look forward to fighting and supporting real reforms for taxpayers, and it starts with spending. We must implement a spending cap, and enact mandate reform, so that taxes of all kinds and on all people can be lowered permanently. That is the true long-term solution to our problems.”
