(Albany, NY) Senate Majority Conference Leader John L. Sampson and Finance Committee Chairman Carl Kruger today released the Senate’s “Blue Book”— a finance staff analysis of the proposed $133.9 billion 2010-11 Executive Budget.
The Legislature has an obligation to the public to enact a budget that creates jobs, controls spending, and provides relief to overburdened taxpayers. The data prepared by Finance Committee staff will provide greater insight into specific programmatic proposals within the Governor’s budget which must be discussed in depth, opposed when necessary, and made stronger when appropriate to maintain New York’s status as the Empire State.
