Statement From New York State Assembly Minority Leader Brian M. Kolb (R,I,C-Canandaigua) On Assembly Majority 2012-13 Budget Resolution

"The Assembly Majority passed its 2012-13 Budget Resolution during today's legislative session. While these one-house resolutions are seen as symbolic, they send an important message about priorities. Our Conference opposed the Majority's Budget Resolution largely because of the priorities it excluded, such as private sector job creation, statewide economic development and mandate relief. More jobs for New Yorkers is 'job one' for our state - yet the Budget Resolution missed the mark on this priority. The following are just a few of the critical components not included in the Majority's Budget Resolution:

Based on these missing pieces, the Majority's Budget Resolution gets an 'I' for incomplete. If our economy is going to make the grade, pro-growth, job creation proposals cannot be an afterthought; they have to be front-and-center on the Assembly agenda everyday until New York's economy has moved from a fragile recovery to sustained growth."
