Spoiler Alert: Film Tax Credit Won’t Save Economy in Distress

Reclaim New York executive director Brandon Muir offered the following response to Governor Cuomo’s comments on the state’s film tax credit program today at the opening of Silvercup Studios North:

““We’ve seen this movie before and – spoiler alert – the ship still sinks.

“Special tax breaks for favorite industries are never going to build an economic future for all New Yorkers. Reforming the tax structure and ending Albany’s spending addiction will. New York’s economic policy continues to be like only saving the cute animals from extinction. The Governor and the Legislature can smile for the camera all they want. It still doesn’t make any sense for the rest of us.”
