STATEMENT ON THE LEGISLATURE’S IMMINENT RETURN
TO ALBANY TO ADDRESS “TAX REFORM”
The Legislature and the Governor have an opportunity to enact real, progressive tax reform and to spare millions of low- and middle-income New Yorkers from the continuing injustice that is built into the current State budget. For the sake of the 99% in New York—including thousands of CUNY students—they must not squander their chance. They must retain the “millionaires’ tax” or implement a new tax on the 1%.
