"While many states are talking about raising taxes on businesses and workers, New York continues to cut taxes and see powerful benefits.

"Corporations are locating and expanding here because Governor Pataki and the Legislature have made the Empire State a much better place in which to do business.

"As we continue our commitment to reducing taxes and take other steps to be more competitive, we will see more new businesses—and more jobs—in New York State."
