A public show of support for Governor Cuomo's new tax cutting proposals. Democrats, republicans and business groups stood together to say they support the tax cuts and think you should too.

The proposals that Cuomo outlined in his State of the State Address last week, freeze your property taxes and cut corporate and manufacturing taxes. The head of Greater Rochester Enterprise says that's important when he's trying to convince a company to put it's new jobs here.

Mark Peterson, C.E.O. Greater Rochester Enterprise, said, "This proposal makes it much easier and much more likely that those new jobs will be in New York State, in the Finger Lakes, in the Rochester region, than they will be in Tennessee or Ohio or another state. And that's a big deal."
