Phil Palmesano on Cuomo’s Budget

Southern Tier (WENY) - Local Assemblymen Phil Palmesano is giving his thoughts on the Governors budget proposal.
    
Palmesano says he's pleased the governor recognized the need to provide tax relief. But believes more aggressive measures need to be taken to encourage more private sector investment and job creation.
    
On education, he says he's happy the governor finally recognized the need to address the problems with, what Palmesano calls, the disastrous implementation of the new Common Core Standards.
     
Regarding his thoughts on the closure of Monterey Shock, he says it simply makes no sense to shut it down.
