PRESS RELEASE: Statement From Marc Panepinto Regarding the Bank of America Settlement Funds

08.24.14

At a time when taxpayers continue to struggle to make ends meet, our schools continue to be underfunded, and our roads and bridges are in desperate need of repair, these settlement funds should be put to use righting these wrongs. For our local economy to grow and prosper once again, we must invest in our local infrastructure to put New Yorkers back to work and ease access to markets and consumers. We also have to ensure that New Yorkers keep more of their hard earned money by providing real tax relief and ending the crippling Gap Elimination Adjustment that has hampered our schools for too long. I urge that the Bank of America settlement funds be used for these common sense initiatives. I will ensure we get Western New York back on solid ground when I am elected to the Senate this November.
