Statement from Stony Brook University President on Congressional Tax Reform

stanley_welcome.jpg

In response to recent Congressional tax reform negotiations, Stony Brook University President Samuel L. Stanley Jr. said today: "As tax reform negotiations continue, I urge leaders in Congress to consider the adverse impacts of proposed provisions on students, research and the State of New York. The provisions proposed would significantly increase costs for graduate students, hurt institutional stability by bringing about a reduction in charitable giving, and result in a decrease in federal funding availability for research and financial aid. In addition, the elimination of the state and local income tax deduction (SALT) would cause a brain drain in New York, resulting in a reduction in state services and support for areas like higher education.
