“Banning plastic bags while protecting criminals, undocumented immigrants and corrupt politicians is the story of the 2019-20 budget. There’s nothing serious in here about helping hard-working families or providing real relief to struggling business owners. While I’m pleased to see the real property tax cap being made permanent, it’s a sole breath of fresh air in the stagnant atmosphere of Albany politics, that includes cuts to the winter recovery fund, AIM funding lower than needed, and protecting the arrest records of criminals, but I guess that’s what you get in a one party government.”
