“This historic budget agreement clearly demonstrates to all New Yorkers that Albany is focused on delivering real results for the middle class. For the third year in a row, New York State has created a fiscally sound and responsible budget that cuts taxes and creates jobs. This budget closes a $1.3 billion dollar gap with no new taxes or fees while also phasing out the 18-a Utility Assessment that would otherwise hit homeowners’ pocketbooks.
"I applaud the Senate leadership today for agreeing to restore $120 million dollars in proposed spending cuts to the Office for People with Developmental Disabilities. As I have said before, I believe that we cannot balance the budget on the backs of people with developmental disabilities, including the many agencies who provide critical care for our most vulnerable populations. The Senate has acted wisely and I am hopeful that we can pass an on-time balanced budget that continues to fully fund these vital services."
