Tague: Assembly Majority Gut-Busting Budget is too Rich for Hardworking New Yorkers to Stomach

A Statement from Assemblyman Chris Tague (R,C-Schoharie)

“For far too long one-party rule in Albany has made it even easier for leaders to do what they do best: spend other people’s money. Not on my watch. When it comes to protecting the assets of the hardworking people I represent in the 102nd Assembly District, I’m working hard to see that this budget is fiscally-sound, restores public safety by fixing bail reform and meets the priorities of the people. Where I’m from that means infrastructure funding, access to affordable internet and safeguarding agriculture and our rural or Main Street economies. I’ll keep working for these priorities and to encourage leaders to include them in a final budget agreement, but on this bloated, gut-busting $232 billion plan, I have to vote no.”
