Statement from Independent Democratic Conference Leader Jeff Klein

Governor Cuomo is right in saying that together we’ve accomplished so much to improve the lives of every New Yorker, working as one. Paid Family Leave, a $15 minimum wage, Raise the Age and marriage equality are life changing policies. I’m proud that our Governor sees the state as ‘One New York’ and shares a vision with the Independent Democratic Conference to save our taxpayers from irresponsible tax policy in Washington, to pass the DREAM Act to help students achieve their full potentials, to protect our unions and collective bargaining and to fund sorely needed repairs to the MTA without delay. I look forward to a productive session, and to working with the Governor and my colleagues to uplift the lives of all New Yorkers.
