2014-2015 EXECUTIVE BUDGET PROPOSAL INFORMATION

Governor Andrew Cuomo has unveiled his new Executive Budget Proposal for the 2014-2015 Fiscal Year.  

For the past three years, the State Senate has successfully worked with the Governor to enact on-time budgets that achieve our key goals of controlling taxes and spending, creating jobs, and investing in key areas like education and the environment. 

This year, the Members of the State Senate are again looking forward to negotiating a soundly balanced, on-time State Budget that keeps our State moving forward, and that reflects the priorities and aspirations of all New Yorkers.

Creative Celebration

Dear Participant,

Thank you for your wonderful contribution to the Thanksgiving Day Creative Celebration. In our first year, we received outstanding poems, essays, and artwork that exemplify the creativity of New York State’s young people.

The submissions received are remarkable in what they represent – showing gratitude and respect for family, friends, our troops fighting overseas, and many other important subjects and activities. I am humbled and honored to see such inspiring contributions in response to what is a deceptively difficult question: “What are you thankful for?”

On behalf of the New York State Senate, I would like to offer my wholehearted congratulations to all of the participants in this year’s Thanksgiving Day Creative Celebration.

A MESSAGE FROM SENATE MAJORITY LEADER DEAN SKELOS

Welcome to the official website of the New York State Senate.

When we first opened the 2011 Legislative Session, my Senate Majority colleagues and I made a commitment to improve things in Albany. We said we would stop the over-taxing and over-spending, and break through the gridlock and dysfunction to create a government that truly functions in the best interests of the people. One year later, we have delivered.

We understand that New Yorkers want state government to cost less and work better. Hard-working taxpayers want to pay lower income and property taxes. Businesses are looking for more economic freedom to expand and create jobs. We didn’t always have a partner to achieve these goals. Now, working with Governor Andrew Cuomo, we do.
