Now, taxpayers are bracing for what's to come.
Republican Assemblywoman Nicole Malliotakis is a staunch critic of the governor.
She's currently in a tight Congressional race that's drawing national attention with freshman Max Rose in New York's 11th District, covering Staten Island and part of Southern Brooklyn.
The five-term Albany lawmaker joined CBSN New York's political reporter Marcia Kramer for this week's episode of "The Point."
Watch "The Point" Fridays at 6:30 p.m. and Sundays at 10:00 a.m., 2:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. streaming on CBSN New York.
