New York State Budget
The state budget process is Constitutionally mandated. Every year the Governor must submit an Executive Budget proposal outlining the anticipated income and expenses in the year to follow. Legislative committees open the proposal to public review, calling on state agencies and stakeholders to address the proposed budget appropriations. These joint legislative hearings are presented in realtime on NYSenate.gov. The New York State Senate welcomes public testimony as part of its annual budget review. The state Constitution mandates the approval of the state budget by April 1.
