Assemblyman Dean Murray (R,C – East Patchogue) today attended Governor Cuomo’s State of the State Address and was encouraged by some of the Governor’s priorities for the 2012 legislative year.
“Every year the Governor’s State of the State speech sets the tone for the New York State legislature,” said Murray. “I have a laundry list of priorities that I would like to see accomplished by the end of our session. I look forward to continuing to work in a bipartisan fashion with my colleagues to bring New York back to the forefront in this global economy.”
The Assemblyman noted that jobs and mandate relief should be the top priorities.
Assemblyman Murray is sponsoring a mandate relief bill (A5305) requiring a three-year moratorium on unfunded mandates from Albany and also repealing existing unfunded mandates.
“Last session we made headway by instituting a property tax cap to take the burden off of our homeowners,” said Murray. “Now we must bring relief to our localities and school districts so that they can provide the best services to our communities without feeling cash-strapped by state unfunded mandates.”
“Job creators are the backbone of our economy. We must help strengthen our job creators’ foundation in order to help boost our economy and be a strong global competitor, and successfully put New Yorkers back to work,” said Murray.
“I applaud the Governor for staying strong on controlling New York’s spending and rightsizing state government,” said Murray. “Now it is our turn to work with the Governor to create a stronger New York in 2012.”
