We're doing okay senators -- senator you have taken a real beating the past couple of weeks because of your stand. On taxiing the -- why do you insist announce support in the so called millionaire's tax. Well John if you -- via the millionaire's tax -- but up a couple of Europe a goal by the democratic senate and it actually had an expiration date. -- December 31 of 2000 elevenths -- It's not that does that I'm continuing. I mean it's supported brawl -- this year but then it expire by the -- own operation. At the end of this year and we've -- Basically not too well renewal or create any new taxes -- regard -- -- particular budget and we have done -- in the -- -- a keeping true to their war by that. Not every attracted by cutting government spending and have any resources to create private sector dropped. Okay and I you voted for the budget would show did not include a 20/20 plan but previously used to you'd vote against it. If it didn't include the provisions for UB 20/20 one of the change of mind. Bob because in the last ninety days we have become further on this bill want to know what happened on a 55 to one. And as I stated last week. Would be support from the -- have been on the table. If I had a commitment from governor Cuomo that this was gonna move forward. That I would vote for that sparked an ambassador to create this function I'm here to get rid of -- and -- Sunday we saw their commitment by trying to imagine at a news conference he mentioned and again the very next day. Our senate had spoken to governor Cuomo personally and basically he had stated that. You be want equality is a lot of people in the bought it was one of the three components but -- but that's. And number through the capital on the you know what 138 million dollars which UB has been unity. -- restored and still on the table but the most important thing with the commitment from governor Cuomo that he was gonna make coordinate our governor of this state. And that the that you're gonna move forward with a summit and Deborah Glick from the family acknowledges that some evidence that it should look -- picking Garnett. I thought no reason that they know on this particular portion of -- and I -- format that members of UB at all for the trade groups that are. Are are waiting for -- construction jobs and and -- the report there are very happy that at this point in time and never Buffy get this far this early in the game. Okay thank you senator in my -- on you for your time this morning. No problem have a good -- let's switch over now to democratic senator Tim Kennedy. Good morning Tim Martin great great your freshman state legislator to talk if you can about the pressure of the protests and had a difficult this was to get this budget done an on time. Yes well off person on a very pleased with the improved process that in terms of the quickness in the efficiency. Of the negotiations a week with -- about time budget. That's -- and hasn't been done in Albany for years. I think it -- a lot about the new energy leadership in the state capitals starting with the governor's office and going into the legislature with. New assembly members and senators you know we're working in bipartisan fashion that this renewed sense this cooperation. We've seen that right here in the Western New York delegation you know we don't working together every single day. -- initiatives to boost our economy improved Laviolette in buffalo and western new York and you know we we understand when it comes the budget that the process. Is everything in its account and that matter quite frankly and you know what unfortunately we -- what it would not included in the final budget agreement and of this deeply disappointed by that. Now this was largely the governor's original budget are still some funding was restored especially to education what do you know about. Education additional education money coming to Western New York. Why can I can tell you that. The education cuts that were made. Through this budget that that was. Put together yesterday that I voted against -- there's going to be significant cuts and aid. Across all of New York State to the tune of. Over a billion dollars in an education cuts. You know I I'm I'm I'm deeply concerned that while beer cuts to education. At the same time that there's. A text spell out that's being given them mainly to Wall Street millionaires and and it just doesn't make sense that -- it specifically. Doesn't make sense of that for the people of Western New York. That that that education particularly after a while while. Millionaires on Wall Street there are getting a bailout but I can tell you that you know well when we talk of the positives of this budget delicate at the same time you know. What we have to look at what we're going to do moving forward. Out of the budget process has done that and creating jobs in western new York and that's what this is all about. Moving forward we need to create jobs and opportunity to not only bring business western open at the same time. To keep young people here to keeper educating -- in in western new York and -- do the things that are necessary to improve our economy. Tim thanks for joining us thank you so much that's New York State senator Tim Kennedy.
