Senator Dilan in Capitol

Upon conclusion of hearings on the Executive Budget, the Senate Democratic Conference has reviewed and analyzed the testimony of stakeholders and has generated a series of priorities and recommendations for the 2018-19 State Budget. After consideration of the proposed Executive Budget, the Senate Democratic Conference makes the following substantive recommendations as our budget priorities for SFY 2018-19 State Budget.

We believe these proposals should be included in the final budget, are consistent with the SFY 2018-19 financial plan and projected revenues. The initiatives outlined in our letter are socially prudent and economically sound. They follow a long-standing Democratic Conference position, that the budget is an opportunity to improve the lives of hard-working New Yorkers.
