Here is Senate Republican Leader Dean Skelos’s response to Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s State of the State address this afternoon, a 9-minute YouTube video that outlines GOP support for new incentives for businesses to grow jobs and reiterates the conference’s opposition to the public financing of political campaigns.

Skelos also outlines the GOP plan to curb gun violence trough cracking down on illegal weapons and tougher sentences.

It’s expected the same sort of gun control deal is imminent, and Speaker Sheldon Silver says he’s told his members to stay in town through the week in case a deal is reached.

Indeed, there’s nothing too surprising in the Skelos response, which comes as his conference has formed a Majority Coalition government with the Independent Democratic Conference.
