41st Senate District
As the legislative session is due to begin this week, Republican Senate Chairman Robert Ortt and members of the Republican Conference today unveiled a comprehensive vision for Reset New York.
The plan has multiple components to address the growing economic and tax challenges of state, many of which have been exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic, and to find a better way for all New Yorkers.
« Under New York’s one-party control, we have seen a dramatic and undesirable shift in our state’s priorities Democrats have shown no interest in rebuilding our local economies, easing the financial burden on our middle class, or curbing the ever-increasing outflow of New Yorkers fleeing our state. They were trying to release dangerous criminals into our communities, ours Undermine law enforcement and millions vo Wasting n dollars on progressive agenda items. The COVID-19 pandemic has only highlighted the need for immediate action to address the unresolved challenges facing our small businesses and hardworking taxpayers in New York, ”said Robert Ortt, Republican Senate chairman.
The Senate Republican plan includes proposals to who prioritize restarting our local economy, rethinking the way New York State works, and reaffirming commitment to New York State residents to maintain strong, resilient communities.
« The New York government is failing its people. Broken policies have made New York more expensive, less safe, and impacted the quality of life for our residents. We need to change course before it’s too late, « said Vice-Chairman Andrew Lanza.
» During this pandemic, the single-party leadership in New York seems to have shown little interest in amplifying the active pandemic and an active legislative process To play a role in the constructive fight against the pandemic by putting the safety and livelihood of our communities at the forefront of legislative policy. I am proud to work with my colleagues to offer specific solutions with which we can face the challenges ahead. I urge my colleagues across the political spectrum to join us in ending this terrible crisis and rebuilding our state for the better, « said Senator Fred Akshar.
» While New York State was once in our nation as a a pillar of economic strength, excellent education and innovation in public policy, its leadership is more dubious today. High taxes, excessive job loss regulations, and a rising crime rate have made us number one in population loss, and a misguided focus on politically motivated agendas has diverted valuable resources from our core responsibilities. With the additional challenges posed by the pandemic, the future of our state hangs in balance. If ever there was a compelling case to rethink and change course, it is, « said Senator George M. Borrello.
» Long before the COVID-19 pandemic turned our world upside down , New York faced formidable challenges, including an impending budget deficit and a shrinking population. The corona virus has exacerbated our problems, increased the financial burden, and marginalized our economy and many small businesses. As we fight the pandemic, we must also safely reopen our economies, control spending, relieve taxpayers and restore our system of checks and balances in state government, « said Senator Patrick M. Gallivan.
» We have an exodus seen by New York residents, families, and businesses who fled the state for better opportunities due to undesirable policies, onerous regulations, and high taxes. Substantial and dramatic changes are required, particularly at a time when the state’s fiscal challenges have been greatly exacerbated by the coronavirus pandemic. This plan realigns the state’s priorities and helps build a better and better future for New York, « said Senator Joseph Griffo.
» Together we can restore New York to its rightful status as the Empire State. To do this, we need to work with our small business owners, farmers and other job-makers. My focus is on opening up New York to business and helping people get back to work safely. This common sense package would help the communities I represent and put our state on the path to real economic recovery and future prosperity, « said Senator Pam Helming.
» Tackling the unprecedented, ongoing health, economic and community challenges from COVID-19 requires big, bold solutions. We need to rethink the state’s approach to solving problems, successfully restart our economy, and renew our commitment to residents and each other. Partisan politics and a bureaucratic Albany caught in the old methods will not work. What will work is to drive smarter public policies that recognize the breadth and depth of our challenges and the need for new thinking that goes beyond party labels. It is time for our state to hit the reset button and it starts with the priorities and principles we are revealing today. Our New York State Reset Plan reflects our continued efforts to bring New Yorkers together and improve the quality of life in our state. We are ready to answer the challenges of COVID and deliver the positive change that New Yorkers expect and rightly deserve, « said Senator Daphne Jordan.
» Between July 2019 and July 2020, New York State led the Nation in at least one thing: people who move out. The pandemic only accelerated an already existing trend. High taxes and an unfriendly business climate are the real culprits. Our small businesses need help and our state needs a new direction. We already know what works from other states that are growing and not shrinking. We don’t need to reinvent the wheel, we need to reset it. Senate Republicans are up to just that and I am proud to support it, « said Senator Michael Martucci.
» As our state emerges from the current crisis, it is important that we work together immediately to build the future to shape our state better than the past. The “Reset New York” plan reflects the priorities of hardworking New Yorkers, and I am proud to work with my colleagues at the Senate Republican Conference to ensure their voices are heard in Albany. The challenges our state is facing are not new, but the solutions have to be – and finding them has to be our main focus, « said Senator Mario Mattera.
» I look forward to ours during this new legislature Senate Republican conference that expresses the need to rebuild local economies, focuses on stronger and safer communities, and opposes what threatens a devastating expansion of normal business. and issue direction in the state government. This « resetting New York » strategy begins our commitment to a fiscally responsible, sensible government that works better for taxpayers, creates and protects livelihoods, upholds public safety, and focuses on restoring Upstate’s rightful place in government like never before New York focused, « said Senator Tom O’Mara.
» New York is facing real challenges. The COVID-19 pandemic is one reason for our struggles, but headstrong government actions that serve the needs of our small businesses, families and taxpayers failing are the real culprit. There is no room for error and now is the time to change course by adopting the Reset New York agenda. Specifically, broadband access, helping our farmers and a A strong education system is one of the first building blocks that can put us on the right path s issue guidelines that create opportunities, not those that limit us, « said Senator Peter Oberacker.
» The families, businesses and seniors of Long Island are hurt and need more support and relief from the state government, both in the short term, to get out of the pandemic, as well as in the future, to make sure New York is a more affordable and safe place to call home. Resetting New York will put us on a path to meet these goals and reverse the tendencies of higher taxes, onerous regulations and increased crime that have caused hundreds of thousands of residents to flee the Empire State, « said Senator Anthony Palumbo.
« New York urgently needs a reset. The pandemic has highlighted and exacerbated the problems our state has faced for decades. We continue to lose residents and jobs with our high taxes and excessive regulations. Our churches are suffering. Small businesses, restaurants and family businesses struggle to stay afloat. We need to provide real answers and solutions to help our local economies and save our struggling communities. We can no longer ignore these glaring problems. New Yorkers need results now, « said Senator Ed Rath.
» In recent years, people have fled New York State due to high taxes, lack of opportunities, and bureaucracy that hamper business growth. The pandemic only made matters worse, and now, more than ever, our state needs to be reset. From revitalizing our small businesses to making New York affordable for hardworking taxpayers, my colleagues and I are committed to fighting for changes that will improve our state after this unprecedented pandemic, « said Senator Patty Ritchie.
“In spite of the unprecedented challenges our communities face, New Yorkers have remained resilient and, more than ever, need a government determined to deliver. If we are to rebuild our state, we must first reset the state’s priorities and make sure the needs of hardworking, law-abiding New Yorkers are paramount. I am proud to work with my colleagues to reaffirm our commitment to this goal and to do everything possible to ensure that small businesses, middle-class families and struggling New Yorkers have a strong, independent voice on their side, ”said Senator Sue Serino.
« There is only one way to give our businesses and communities, large and small, the best possible chance to recover. » Too often, when the need for help is evident, the government’s response is to throw an anvil into the water instead of a lifesaver. We cannot make this difficult with higher taxes and more inappropriate demands. Our vision must show that we are listening. That’s what this is about, « said Senator Dan Stec.
» As a new year and legislative period begins, our top priority must remain fighting the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic so that we can stop the spread of the virus , Save lives and safely reopen our economy. To reset New York State by safely restarting our economy, we must address the elephant in the room our state government is not talking about: the fact that New York is leading the nation for the third year in a row in brain draining of New York residents , with 126,000 people last year and over a million in the last decade. When there are enough people left to afford to leave New York State, who will pay for infrastructure, healthcare, schools, and other necessities? I look forward to working with Leader Ortt and my colleagues at the Senate Republican Conference in the weeks and months ahead to resolve these issues and develop guidelines to change things so that the Empire State does not become an « empty state. » « Said Senator Jim Tedisco.
» I look forward to working with my colleagues from the Senate Republican Conference to advance our ambitious Reset New York plan today. As we all work to keep our state and local communities safe from the COVID-19 pandemic, our focus must be on the economy, which begins with evolving measures to support small businesses that are the backbone of our communities, jobs , public safety, improving our local infrastructure, and making sure our schools get their fair share. Party control has pushed these priorities aside, and with our plan to reset New York, our conference will ensure that our voters’ voices are heard, ”said Senator Alexis Weik.
