"The tax reform agreement between Governor Cuomo and the New York State Legislature, which demands more from the wealthiest - albeit less than the current Personal Income Tax Surcharge - comes at a critical time for the most vulnerable children in New York City.  Especially during challenging economic times, it is essential that we protect investments in services for children and families who are currently living in the clutches of poverty," said The Children's Aid Society President and CEO Richard Buery. "As we move toward the state budget negotiation process, during which Albany will have to close a significant budget deficit, government must continue to keep its promise to protect our most vulnerable children and families. Only then will this prove to be a progressive tax reform strategy that is truly fair."
