Promoting his 2013-14 budget, Governor [[Andrew Cuomo]] and his 2014 re-election campaign launched television ads in late January, 2013.<ref>[http://www.buffalonews.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20130123/CITYANDREGION/130129636/1003 Tom Precious, ''The Buffalo News'', "Cuomo taking to TV to sell his budget plan," January 23, 2013]</ref>  E.J. McMahon of the pro-market Empire State Center for New York Policy argued that Cuomo's claim in the ads that his budget did not impose any new taxes was technically true but disingenuous because the governor did call for extending two "temporary" taxes first imposed in 2009.  Cuomo proposed extending the 2 percent assessment on electric, water, and gas utility bills for five years beyond its scheduled March 13, 2014, expiration date.  Senate Majority Leader '''Skelos''' and his fellow Senate Republicans opposed the utility tax extension and held a February 5 press conference on the topic with representatives from the Business Council of New York State, the National Federation of Independent Businesses, the Manufacturers Association of Central New York (MACNY), the New York Farm Bureau, and AARP.<ref>[http://www.nysenate.gov/press-release/senate-republicans-call-governor-cuomo-remove-utility-tax-surcharge-extension-executiv John A. DeFrancisco, press release, "Senate Republicans call on Governor Cuomo to remove utility tax surcharge extension from executive budget," February 5, 2013]</ref>  Cuomo also proposed extending a tax on households earning more than $10 million annually.  Already statutorily limited to receiving only half of their tax deductions for their charitable giving, high-end taxpayers would see the temporary law limiting them to receiving only a quarter of their charitable giving deductions extended for three more years.  The utility assessment tax brings in $509 million annually, and the charitable giving deduction limit brings in $140 million.<ref>[http://www.nytorch.com/?p=7027 E.J.

Issues

Tax extensions

Promoting his 2013-14 budget, Governor Andrew Cuomo and his 2014 re-election campaign launched television ads in late January, 2013.[1] E.J. McMahon of the pro-market Empire State Center for New York Policy argued that Cuomo's claim in the ads that his budget did not impose any new taxes was technically true but disingenuous because the governor did call for extending two "temporary" taxes first imposed in 2009. Cuomo proposed extending the 2 percent assessment on electric, water, and gas utility bills for five years beyond its scheduled March 13, 2014, expiration date. Senate Majority Leader Skelos and his fellow Senate Republicans opposed the utility tax extension and held a February 5 press conference on the topic with representatives from the Business Council of New York State, the National Federation of Independent Businesses, the Manufacturers Association of Central New York (MACNY), the New York Farm Bureau, and AARP.[2] Cuomo also proposed extending a tax on households earning more than $10 million annually. Already statutorily limited to receiving only half of their tax deductions for their charitable giving, high-end taxpayers would see the temporary law limiting them to receiving only a quarter of their charitable giving deductions extended for three more years. The utility assessment tax brings in $509 million annually, and the charitable giving deduction limit brings in $140 million.[3]

Marijuana Legislation

In June 2012, Skelos led the fight against a proposal by Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) that would have decriminalized the display of small amounts of marijuana. While possessing small amounts of marijuana is legal in the state, showing it to a police officer is not legal. Ultimately, Republicans were able to defeat the measure.[4]
