How New York Is Fairing So Far

Cuomo: NY To Sue Over Federal Tax Law

On MTA: No, Gov. Cuomo Doesn't Know How to "Fix It" -- Jumaane Williams

The past year "brought a long overdue reckoning" on sexual harassment, Cuomo said, and provided an opportunity for lawmakers to address a problem that goes back decades in state government.

Governor Andrew Cuomo's State of the State address delivered on Wednesday had the message that despite the adversities the state will face in the new year it will continue to move forward.

Adirondack Council spokesman John Sheehan said Cuomo's speech was comparable to past ones, but he was expecting to hear about the governor's plans to put the brakes on train storage in the Adirondack Park, given that it was one of his 22 proposals for the year. L. No. 115-97), signed December 22 by President Donald Trump, allows taxpayers to deduct up to $10,000 of property taxes and state and local income or sales taxes.

"First, we will challenge the new law in court as unconstitutional - the first federal double taxation in our nation's history, violative of states' rights and the principle of equal protection" Cuomo's briefing book states. "And let's thank the Attorney General [Eric Schneiderman] and give him a round of applause for his good work in representing us".

The Democratic governor's plan - dubbed the No Student Goes Hungry Program - proposes a law that bans "any public act that humiliates a student who can not afford lunch". So New York residents would still pay the same amount in total taxes, with less going to Uncle Sam.

He also pledged to follow through on a scheduled, temporary state-funded "property tax credit" due to peak in 2019 and then disappear. "This is the most partisan, divisive legislation we have ever seen". By tapping into the abundant energy provided by this pollution-free resource, we're well on our way to the ultimate goal of meeting our energy needs entirely with clean, renewable energy. According to Twiter, he announces the state of emergency in the city of New York, Long Island and Westchester County because of the extreme natural conditions.

Cuomo, instead, suggested he might look at other ways to protect state tax dollars, noting he may want to end a so-called carried interest loophole that benefits Wall Street. He said that this disparity can only get worse under the newly passed tax reform.

The attack on NY state and a few other high-tax states is an act of sedition and conspiracy to commit sedition on the part of a handful of "red state" members of Congress and their staffs.

"I'm glad the governor is looking for creative alternatives that may provide a solution", he continued. "New York's union construction workers have the skills and experience necessary to make sure this work is done safely, on-time, and on-budget".

Yesterday, Governor Cuomo tweeted condemnation of the Trump administration's latest move to grant licenses for oil and gas exploration around much of the U.S. coastline, drawing a stark comparison with New York's clean energy ambitions and policies.
