SUNDAY CONVERSATION: Assembly Minority Leader Brian Kolb slams budget outcome, burden placed on Upstate

Last week a $175.5 billion spending bill was passed.

Some lawmakers believe that bill, which was packed with a number of consequential pieces of legislation – is proposed that way intentionally by the majority.

“This legislation simply wouldn’t pass in a traditional, up-and-down vote,” explained New York State Assembly Minority Leader Brian Kolb (R-Canandaigua). That said, it passed, and now taxpayers will have to live with the consequences.

While recreational marijuana was not legalized – several other key provisions were included.

Leader Kolb was in-studio this week discussing the budget outcome, and how it will impact residents of the Finger Lakes and Upstate New York as a whole.
