Local Lawmakers Focused On Governor's Education Budget

Funding for Binghamton University's Pharmacy School might not be the only state money making its way to the Southern Tier.

Local lawmakers will be paying close attention to the governor's budget address Tuesday to see what other spending may impact our area. Both State Senator Tom Libous and Assemblywoman Donna Lupardo are focused on what the governor's plans are for education spending. 

"I'd like to see a little more money going to education because certainly the upstate rural schools I represent have been hit hard over the past several years," said State Senator Tom Libous, 52nd District (R)

"First we need to see the numbers but I think there will be a very lively conversation making sure that our schools have the resources that they need. Especially in light of the challenges they're facing trying to implement the new Common Core Standards," said Assemblywoman Donna Lupardo, 123rd District (D).

Lupardo says she'd like to get additional information on Cuomo's tax proposals, including his call to reduce the tax for upstate manufacturers to zero.
