News York State Exposed: Are Downstate Lawmakers Preventing Progress In Upstate NY?
by news


The battle between downstate and upstate New York is about to get much more fierce. Some say downstate lawmakers are standing in the way of a major tax break for residents in upstate.

A proposal would give upstate families who make less than $50,000 a year a 25-percent reduction on their income taxes. Supporters say it would help boost our economy here but there are big fears over whether this will actually pass.

The reason? Lawmakers who represent the New York City area don't seem to be on board. News10NBC went there to find out, asking lawmakers, when upstate will great a break.

Our travels in New York also took us to the office of Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver � a man many say is public enemy number one when it comes to upstate.

For weeks we tried to speak with him on the phone, but no response. So we went to his Manhattan office. Did he meet us or once again deny a request to be interviewed? Find out tonight on News10NBC at 5 and 6 and learn more about the plan and what it means for you.
