Deputy Leader Gianaris Applauds Senate’s Budget Proposal

ALBANY – New York State Senate Deputy Leader Michael Gianaris applauded the Senate’s budget resolution, which passed the chamber on March 16.

“This is an exciting budget proposal for challenging times and I am pleased to support it,” said Senate Deputy Leader Gianaris. “It addresses the hardships facing small businesses, tenants, excluded workers, and our housing vulnerable neighbors in a way that reflects the values of our state.”

The Senate's budget resolution includes many of Senator Gianaris’ priorities, including the elimination of state tax breaks for Opportunity Zones, the Housing Our Neighbors with Dignity Act to convert distressed commercial properties, rent relief, and the Small Business Billion – $500 million in commercial rent relief and $500 million in grants for small businesses.
