Protests ahead of NY State of the State Address

Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Wednesday during his State of the State address that he is exploring how to make the complicated switch, joining other high-tax states in considering how to protect residents' tax deductions and state revenue. "I am committed to working with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle, and in both houses, to see that the people's business is done".

A key element of the Governor's proposal is a $15 million investment in workforce training and infrastructure planning to advance opportunities for New Yorkers to participate in this new industry. "If we do not fix this problem, it is a question of the State of New York's economic viability long term".

Those efforts are to be coordinated with other states. We need to put more resources and funding behind that. "So whether you can demonstrate that the people, at the time that they were making those claims, whether they knew they were false or should have known they were false, that would seem to be the crux of the case".

Reports further state that, in a bid to address the intermittency of wind and solar power, Cuomo plans to deploy 1500 megawatt of energy storage by the year 2025. The mayor recently reiterated his call for a new "millionaires tax" to fund subway repairs - a proposal widely seen as dead on arrival in Albany even before the federal tax bill reduced it to absurdity.

Cuomo has said he's concentrating on being governor. "While any constitutional challenge is pending, the governor's three-part strategy would provide more immediate and timely relief to New Yorkers by taking advantage of the tax-reduction provisions now in the revised code". "With a projected $4 billion budget deficit, we will have to make important decisions this legislative session".

"I look forward to seeing the specifics of Governor Cuomo's proposals and to working with the Governor, the Attorney General, and the Senate to craft appropriate, enforceable legislation to combat the opioid epidemic", he wrote in an email to City & State.

New York State Building & Construction Trades Council President Jim Cahill: "Building offshore wind turbines will create good paying, union jobs".

While many residents from the state of NY are returning from the Christmas holiday, the state authorities are pounding the political pavement already. "We all agree, as he said, this is a complex undertaking but one the city is certainly ready to join in, because if we can find a way to protect New Yorkers from this double taxation exposure, we want to do that". On the achievement of this objective, the proposal would call for the generation of Dollars 2 billion in energy value and benefit to over 10,000 New Yorkers, cite reliable sources.

The previous 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.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo declared a state of emergency Thursday morning, saying at a briefing that weather conditions could become "more problematic" as the day progresses.
