State Senator Joe Griffo launched an effort for residents to sign his new on-line petition urging the rejection of Federal budget proposals that would cost New York taxpayers billions of dollars annually. Griffo stated that for decades, there has been a major imbalance between what New York sends to Washington each year, and whatthe state gets in return from the Federal government. New Federal budget proposals would worsen this imbalance by ending a longstanding policy of allowing taxpayers to deduct their state and local tax liability, including property taxes, from their federal taxes. Estimates show that the measure would result in a nearly $15 billion tax increase for New York families, an average increase of more than $4,500 per taxpayer. The average Federal tax bill for affected taxpayers would increase 30 percent. The Senator also pointed out that the Mohawk Valley and North Country would be hit especially hard by the misguided proposals, with more than 66,803 taxpayers being saddled with an average new tax increase of $2,350. The petition to oppose this Double-Tax Plan can be found on the Senator's website at www.griffo.nysenate.gov.

The bill grants collective bargaining rights to farm laborers; requires employers of farm laborers to allow at least24 consecutive hours of rest each week; provides for a 10 hour work day for farm laborers; requires overtime rate at one and one-half times normal rate; makes provisions of unemployment insurance law applicable to farm laborers; provides for eligibility of farm laborers for workers' compensation benefits; requires employers of farm laborers to provide farm laborers with claim forms for workers' compensation claims under certain conditions & requires reporting of injuries to employers of farmworkers. The bill moves on to the State Senate, which voted down a similar bill in 2010 by only 4 votes.
Governor Cuomo introduced legislation that establishes a financial restructuring board for local governments. Under this plan, the Board would consist of the State Budget Director, Secretary of State, Attorney General, Comptroller, and one private sector restructuring professional. The Budget Director will establish the standards to determine which local governments qualify as fiscally distressed. Once identified as fiscally distressed, local governments would be able to request the assistance of the Board, and work together to identify a specific restructuring plan. This restructuring plan would be an option for the local government to accept or reject, however once the municipality accepts funding for the plan, they can no longer unilaterally opt out.
