Addabbo statement regarding state budget delay

Senator Joseph P. Addabbo, Jr.

April 3, 2023

“While I am disappointed we didn’t reach an agreement on our state budget before the April 1st deadline, I do believe it's more important to adopt a fiscally responsible budget that includes funding for programs and services essential to New Yorkers than to focus on the missed deadline. Today we passed a short-term extender to ensure public employees will continue to get paid and state operations will go uninterrupted as budget negotiations continue. I look forward to adopting a state budget we can all be proud of.”
