Rep. John J. Faso
“Residents of New York state continue to flee in droves, seeking jobs and lower taxes. The problem is worse in upstate New York because our area has been hit hard with job losses in manufacturing in recent decades and Albany imposes crippling mandates — state programs and regulations paid for in part using local revenue — resulting in the nation’s highest property-tax burden.
Albany just doesn’t get it. Even worse, state policies waste federal dollars — particularly when Washington helps pay for transportation and construction projects.”
