DiPietro Joins Call For American Legion Funding In State Budget

“The message from the Assembly Majority to everyone north of Westchester is clear, get out. Refusing to make the property tax cap permanent hurts practically everyone, burdening residents with $5.7 billion in new taxes cripples our ability to raise a family or start a business, and wanting to cut funding to local farmers wounds one of the most vital parts of upstate’s economy. The message is clear, you’re not wanted in this state if you’re not a connected member of their party, you don’t matter and your money is theirs to play with as they see fit down in New York City.”
