A Statement from Assemblyman Brian Miller (R,I-New Hartford):
“It has been a grave disservice to the taxpayers of our state that our budget process was negotiated behind closed doors with little transparency, and is over a week late. Social policy items aimed at boosting the political profile of a select few have tainted this legislation and New Yorkers deserve better from their elected representatives.
“Although the budget contained many contentious and dangerous policy items, I am pleased to announce that we have secured a record amount of school aid, billions to replace and rebuild our clean water infrastructure, an increase in college aid and funding to fight our growing heroin epidemic.”
Assemblyman Miller represents the 101st District consisting of parts of Delaware, Herkimer, Oneida, Orange, Otsego, Sullivan and Ulster counties. For more information, please visit Assemblyman Miller’sOfficial Website.
