STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- New York state will sue the federal government over the newly enacted GOP tax plan, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo said on Wednesday in his annual State of the State address.
Cuomo, a Democrat, said during his speech that he believes the tax plan is unconstitutional and overly burdensome to New Yorkers. He said that the new law could raise some families' taxes by as much as 25 percent and said the plan amounted to "double taxation."
