Alliance for Quality Education Reacts
December 6th, 2011

Billy Easton of the Alliance for Quality Education said that the deal reached by Gov. Andrew Cuomo and legislative leaders today is a step in the right direction. He does not blast the deal but seems to reserve judgement.

AQE applauds the Assembly Majority and Senate Minority for consistently advocating tax fairness and adequate revenues. We appreciate the fact that the Governor and the Senate Majority are responding to the demands of the 99% of New Yorkers for tax fairness. However, we are concerned that $2 billion in revenues does not fully address the $5 billion hole created by the elimination of the existing millionaires tax,” said Easton in a statement.

Easton goes on to say that the plan will be judged on whether it allows the state to restore cuts made to schools.

Thank you for being well accommodating and for picking out some fabulous tips most people are really eager to be aware of. My personal honest apologies for not expressing gratitude to earlier.
