I hope you are having a wonderful year and that you took some time during summer to experience the wonderful attractions that New York State offers. As we approach the official end of summer, I am recapping for you some major highlights of the legislative session. The 2017 /2018, State Budget was passed on April 9, 2017 and the legislature left Albany on June 29 after taking up Mayoral Control during an Extraordinary Session called by the Governor. Although we did not accomplish everything we had hoped for, we were still able to pass substantial pieces of legislation and secure funding in the budget for important programs and services that enhance the lives of New Yorkers. Click Here to view some of the budget highlights.
