Statement by State Senate Candidate Julie Killian (NY-37) on
New York State Budget Passage

April 1, 2016

"Today's budget deal in Albany was once-again a rushed, close-door affair in which legislators passed a massive state budget without having time to read it. With all the posturing about reform in Albany, last night and this morning showed, once again, that business-as-usual prevails in the state capital. What happened to transparency reform?

"I was pleased to see that the Republican Senate was finally able to get rid of costly Gap Elimination Adjustment passed by the Democrats in  2009-10 that has stripped millions of dollars from Westchester classrooms for years. However, I was disappointed that, yet again, the common sense education tax credit for parochial, Jewish and public schools was rejected because of union pressure.

"Minimum wage needs to increase.  But, it is disconcerting that our leaders -- who must know better -- buckled to a counter-productive $15 minimum wage increase that will cost New York State an estimated 200,000 jobs.  This dramatic raise may appear generous at first glance, but in the end it will deeply hurt the neediest New Yorkers and those just starting out, including Westchester teenagers who need the opportunity to learn the value of work. 

"The Westchester Business Council manages the Westchester Youth Workforce Development Board job training program.  Ninety-seven percent (97%) of its members said they would decrease hiring from youth workforce development programs and 47% would limit expansion plans.  Some say the minimum wage of a lost job is zero, but it isn't zero.  It is actually negative.  New York was already one of the least friendly business states in America; now it will add another barrier to small business creation.

"The more I see Albany in action, the more determined I am to win this state senate seat and introduce a state term limits bill on the floor of the Senate.  We desperately need fresh thinking and special interest disentanglement in the state capital."

Delivers Record Education & Heroin Funding

ALBANY, NEW YORK - Since being elected to local office in 2009, State Senator Terrence Murphy has fought to lower the infamous tax burden associated with New York State and the Hudson Valley.  On Thursday, the freshman Senator from Westchester approved a state budget that delivered a historic tax cut for residents of the Empire State.

"It is no secret that New York residents, especially in the Hudson Valley, continue to battle incredibly strong headwinds to be able to afford to live here," Senator Murphy said.  "This comprehensive package will be directly felt in the pockets of middle class taxpayers and actually provide real relief."
The budget lowers personal income tax rates through a package, that when fully phased in, provides a twenty percent income tax rate cut affecting an estimated four million middle class families across New York.  This will stand as the lowest personal income tax rate since 1946.
In addition to providing significant tax relief, the budget Senator Murphy approved also fulfilled his promise of record school aid and the full restoration of the Gap Elimination Adjustment (GEA).  The GEA was first imposed in 2010 by former Governor David Paterson and shifted critical dollars from our local classrooms to plug glaring holes in the state budget caused by pure fiscal mismanagement of a one party rule system, Murphy said.  Hudson Valley schools were disproportionately affected by having significant dollars driven to schools in New York City.  Last year alone, Senator Murphy led the charge to return $603 million to local classrooms across the state and vowed to restore the remaining $434 million in this year's budget.
"I know the value of an education and as a father with three children in public schools I know how important it is to ensure our local classrooms receive the funding they need to provide the superior level of education New Yorkers have come to expect," Murphy continued.  "While the GEA has slowly been repaired over the past few years, its final elimination will put real dollars in the classrooms of the Hudson Valley.  I am proud to have led this fight since coming to Albany and appreciate the hard work by our local school superintendents, school board members, faculty and staff who have partnered with me to see this through."
This year's budget also ensures a fair living wage in the future for New York's workers in a responsible manner, Murphy said.  Over the course of six years, portions of New York State will see the minimum wage increase, with the protections of regional economic parameters, studies overseen by the Division of Budget and overall condition of our economy. 
The budget also includes provisions that creates the most comprehensive paid family leave program in the United States.  By enacting this plan, family members when qualified will have the peace of mind knowing they will be eligible for twelve weeks of paid family leave to care for an infant, family member in serious health condition or if a member is serving in active military service.
"Small businesses are the backbone of our economy," Senator Murphy, who owns and operates his own medical office, explained.  "This budget strikes the right balance of protection for our small business owners while providing responsible equity for our employees.  Rather than fall victim to wage boards and the dangerous implementation of a flat rate minimum wage, this sensible plan will usher in a fair income level that meets certain triggers and parameters to ensure our state and regional economies can support it.  Lifting people above the federal poverty level will greatly reduce the burden on taxpayers to fund social services, which in the end, help both taxpayers and employers."
Lastly, through Senator Murphy's leadership as Chairman of the New York State Senate Task Force on Heroin and Opioid Abuse, this year's budget provides additional funding focused on tackling the growing issue of addiction in New York State.  With $166 million dedicated to this cause, New York is making a bold statement when it comes to supporting the four prongs for dealing with addiction.
"By securing this money we will save lives," Senator Murphy explained.  "Our task force has traveled to the four corners of our state and it has been made abundantly clear that more help is needed in order to eradicate New York of this epidemic.  With $25 million in new money, we are making a strong statement for the rest of the nation to follow, that New York is not backing down from this fight and we will not rest as long as there are people in recovery seeking our help."
"No budget is perfect but this has given us the opportunity to provide significant tax relief for residents and small businesses, fulfill our promise of delivering critical dollars to our local schools, provide a responsible timeline for wage equity for New Yorkers and enhance our commitment to combating addiction," Senator Murphy concluded.  "Considering where we could have ended, I believe this budget puts New York on a responsible trajectory for a prosperous future."

VALHALLA, NY - Senator Terrence Murphy will host the closing ceremony for the 40th District's Veterans' Hall of Fame Wall exhibit in Mt. Pleasant. Sponsored by Senator Murphy and the New York State Senate Veterans' Hall of Fame, the wall honors the wartime and civilian accomplishments of veterans from all conflicts of war.

"Everything we are, our freedom of speech, our right to vote, we owe to our veterans," said Senator Murphy. "Without hesitation, they accepted the responsibility to defend this country and what it stands for. We owe it to them to recognize their many contributions and brave sacrifices."

Private Carosi, a rifleman in the 1st Battalion, 116th Infantry at Normandy, valiantly set out to reach the Battalion Observation Post and report that a company of his fellow soldiers were under heavy enemy fire. Although he was critically wounded, Mr. Carosi completed his mission. For his wartime service he received the Purple Heart, Good Conduct Medal and the Bronze Star Medal.
  • Gregory T. Lobato (Sleepy Hollow). Deployed to Iraq in 2004, Mr. Lobato led 72 marines while conducting critical logistics missions throughout Al Anbar and other provinces. His platoon provided support during and after the battle of Fallujah, then helped with security for the first Iraqi election and the reopening of the city. His military awards include the Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medal, the Navy and Marine Corps Commendation Medal, the Combat Action Ribbon, and the 1st Marine Expeditionary Force Commanding General's Company Grade Leader of the year Award.
  • Roy Westmoreland (Pleasantville). A Third Class Petty Officer in the Navy, Mr. Westmoreland served with distinction and was awarded the Naval Expeditionary Medal for service at the Bay of Pigs invasion in 1961. He has provided extraordinary community service, helping his fellow veterans, volunteering as a youth basketball and baseball coach and raising funds for the American Legion.
