Governor Cuomo's Proposed 2012 Budget from President & CEO of the LIA

"Governor Cuomo's 2012 budget is good news for Long Island as it doesn't raise taxes and holds the line on spending while reforming the pension system, providing some mandate relief for our counties, and issuing a second round of regional economic development awards, which is a recipe for job growth and economic opportunity. The LIA looks forward to working with the Governor and Senate Majority Leader Skelos to discuss the specific details and their impact to our region before the budget is adopted."
