Fiscal Policy Institute Reacts to Governor Cuomo’s State of the State Address
FPI Agrees that New Yorkers Deserve Results, Not Rhetoric
We welcome Governor Cuomo’s embrace of our call to strengthen the Empire State Child Credit to help families with young children. This is a step forward, but we can do more by strengthening the Earned Income Tax Credit to boost the incomes of struggling New Yorkers and local economies. The Fiscal Policy Institute looks forward to working with our allies and colleagues, Governor Cuomo, and the state legislature to create a just and equitable tax system that works for all New Yorkers.”
The Fiscal Policy Institute is a nonpartisan, nonprofit research and education organization committed to improving public policies and private practices to better the economic and social conditions of all.
