STATEMENT BY SENATOR JOHN BONACIC ON GOVERNOR CUOMO'S BUDGET PROPOSAL

I applaud Governor Cuomo for presenting a balanced budget that holds the line on spending.   Increasing aid to schools statewide by over 4%, during these very challenging economic times is a good thing.  However, in reviewing his aid calculations for several districts in the Hudson Valley, that statewide figure of a 4% increase is not bearing out locally in many districts.  I am concerned about that.
