NEW YORK -- Kenneth Adams, president of the Business Council of New York State, which endorsed Cuomo, said Cuomo will take office at a time when the state has again been identified as the nation’s worst in the level of taxation and the state deficit is on the march upward again.
“Putting together a budget that responds to the deficit but leads to private sector job growth is going to be the challenge. The urgency of the economic crisis facing New York state demands immediate preparation," Adams said of the need for Cuomo to get to work quickly on next year’s budget.
“Now is the time to get to work," Adams said.
