Statement on the End-of-Session Deal from Assemblyman Kieran Michael Lalor (R,C,I - East Fishkill)

"Albany is squeezing as many unrelated bad ideas as possible into this last-minute deal. Albany's big deals tend to be bad for taxpayers.

"Vermont passed a similar bill in 2011, to establish single-payer, government healthcare. The bill required a financial plan by 2013. The plan showed that it would double the size of the state budget in just its first year. Massive tax hikes would have been required to finance it.
