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 my key goals of cutting taxes, holding the line on spending, creating jobs, and investing in key areas like education and the environment.
This year, my senate colleagues and I 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.
