New York State Senators and Assemblymembers will co-host a joint legislative budget hearing in Rockland County to discuss Governor Cuomo’s 2013-2014 Executive Budget. The event will take place this Thursday, February 14th from 3:00pm - 6:00pm at Valley Cottage Library, located at 110 Route 303.
"This hearing will provide an opportunity for residents to gauge a better understanding of how state priorities will impact them on the local level," said Senator Carlucci. "I look forward to working with all stakeholders, advocates, and community leaders to make sure that their voices and input are heard in Albany."
"It is important to solicit input and suggestions from local Rockland residents as we go through this budget process," said Assemblyman Zebrowski. "This hearing will be a great opportunity for taxpayers, municipalities, non-profits and businesses to address Rockland's state representatives on how the Executive Budget impacts them."
The moderated panel will also include other members of the Rockland County state legislative delegation, including New York State Senator William Larkin, Assemblywoman Ellen Jaffee, Assemblywoman Annie Rabbitt, and Assemblyman James Skoufis.
Over 250 organizations throughout Rockland County have been invited to attend. Each representative will be allowed to ask questions about how the budget will impact funding, resources, and play a role in shaping local communities.
