Andrew Cuomo Says New York Will Sue Donald Trump Over Tax Plan

Andrew Cuomo Says New York Will Sue Donald Trump Over Tax Plan

Gov. Andrew Cuomo's State of the State address Wednesday afternoon included few mentions of upstate NY, instead focusing on criticism of the federal government and tackling what is expected to be a hard budget year.

State Sen. Betty Little, R-Queensbury, said in a statement that she supports numerous initiatives Cuomo is taking - including plans to simplify voting and address algal blooms in drinking water - while raising some concern over a gap in the state budget and a concurrent expected drop in revenue in 2018.

"We believe it is illegal, and we will challenge it in court as unconstitutional", he added, calling the law "the first federal double taxation in history, violative of states' rights and the principle of equal protection".

The Democratic governor's plan - dubbed the No Student Goes Hungry Program - proposes a law that bans "any public act that humiliates a student who can not afford lunch".

"Unless it is essential for you to be out on the roads, you should not be", Cuomo said "It becomes a question of common sense for New Yorkers".

He spoke about the affordable housing and homelessness crisis we face across the state while threatening to freeze funds for localities that he feels are not doing enough to combat the crisis, ignoring all of the work that we have done in New York City and threatening, in effect, to make that work for more hard.




Industry experts speculate this move of the Federal government toward meeting the clean energy capacity targets to positively influence the region's offshore wind industry landscape. I always like to hear that we are going to address education, fund it more, because we need that for our schools here in the North Country. I'm hoping for more funding for that through regional assistance grants. According to Twiter, he announces the state of emergency in the city of New York, Long Island and Westchester County because of the extreme natural conditions.

That left other state officials without much information to weigh in on, although some were eager to show their support for holding manufacturers accountable.

The mayor told reporters following the speech he was "struck in particular" by the speech's focus on the tax plan and appreciated that part of the speech. "Until our leaders in Albany find the political strength to ease mandates on local governments, sky-high property taxes will continue to plague struggling families", he said in a news release.

In his State of the State address, Gov. Andrew Cuomo took aim at the pharmaceutical industry, noting how life expectancy decreased in 2017 for the second year in a row due to an uptick in drug overdoses, particularly opioid-related abuse.

"I'm glad the governor is looking for creative alternatives that may provide a solution", he continued. Flanagan said he's not sure that substituting a payroll tax for the state income tax is a good idea.

Instead, the governor spoke mostly in broad strokes about New York's statewide and federal issues. "That's three gates and everything that goes into a game day in terms of revenue".
