Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced that the 2012 State of the State Address will be held in the Empire State Plaza Convention Center on January 4th at 1:30 pm.
"The State of the State Address is an opportunity to open the doors of government to New Yorkers and bring the people into the process of rebuilding our state," Governor Cuomo said. "Holding the State of the State in the Empire State Plaza Convention Center will allow hundreds of New Yorkers from across this state to come to Albany to be a part of this day. I look forward to joining with members of the Legislature and the public on January 4 as we begin the new legislative session and continue the work we began last year to transform our government and build a New New York."
The Governor’s budget revealed both good news and bad news. The bad news is it will be another challenging fiscal year. The good news is the Governor’s budget holds the line on spending and does not raise taxes and fees.
