NYC Says No to Farmers, No to Upstate and No to You

A statement by Assemblyman Chris Tague (R,C,I,Ref-Schoharie) on the proposed Assembly one-house budget.

“The Assembly Majority’s proposed one-house budget is a simple order for everyone not in their connected circle to pack up and leave New York. Refusing to make the property tax cap permanent hurts practically everyone, adding $5.7 billion in new taxes drives struggling families to seek greener pastures and refusing to adequately fund our farmers starves everyone out. It’s an easy message folks, this budget is an assault on upstate New York, middle-class families and everyone who wants to raise a family or start a business here.”
