Statement from LIA President on NYS Budget Agreement

"The LIA applauds Governor Cuomo, Majority Leader Skelos and Speaker Silver on their budget agreement that addresses the deficit without raising taxes and in fact eliminates the income tax surcharge on the middle class and small business owners on Long Island. In addition, the approval of the Re-Charge NY Power program and the regional economic development councils demonstrates Albany is serious about improving the business climate for our state which is critical during this slow and bumpy economic recovery."
