The budget that was passed last week in the Legislature included $90 million cuts in cancer screening for low income families. Assemblyman Bill Nojay tells Finger Lakes News Radio the cuts were business as usual in Albany.
Nojay says it was all about revenge.
Middle class families who earn between $40,000 and $300,000, who have at least one child, will be receiving rebate checks next year. Nojay says it's all about politics.
Nojay tells us there's another motivation for targeting certain people for rebates.
The rebates are worth $350. Listen to Nojay's show weekday afternoons at 5:00 on Finger Lakes News Radio, and replays every morning at 11. You can also listen to Nojay's appearance on Wednesaday's Finger Lakes Morning News with Joe Salzone here
