BUSINESS COUNCIL GIVES HANNON HIGH MARKS FOR HIS VOTES TO CONTROL SPENDING, CUT TAXES AND CREATE JOBS
I have been working successfully with my colleagues in the Senate and the Governor to move New York State forward and bring us out of the recession, said Senator Kemp Hannon (R-Nassau). The Business Council just released its annual rankings of state legislators, and I received an 89% rating.
Hannon was ranked among the top legislators in the New York Senate, all Republicans, and higher than any members of the Assembly. Business Council President Heather Briccetti said this is an improvement over past years, and was appreciative of the Republican-led Senate.
We prefer a pro-business majority, said Briccetti. You have to give credit for leadership there.
The high ratings highlight the importance of a Senate Republican majority working with Governor Cuomo, a democrat, in bi-partisan fashion to keep the State moving forward.
Im always supportive of legislation that spurs economic growth and helps create jobs in New York State, said Hannon. Im proud that the Business Council overwhelmingly approves of my commitment to job creation, tax cutting, and reduction of unnecessary regulatory burdens and wasteful spending.
