Statement by Senator Grisanti on Gov. Cuomo's Budget Proposal

Mark Grisanti

February 01, 2011

"Governor Andrew Cuomo presented some options on how to reduce state spending, and eliminate the deficit. The Governor and I share the same vision to consolidate government operations by  merging eleven separate entities into four state agencies, and reducing state spending by 10 percent. The Governor's proposed budget sets the right tone for the challenges ahead. I understand that this budget is not pretty, but I am confident in working with the people of Western New York, the Governor and elected officials from both sides of the aisle to assure that Western New York is not forgotten about and that the budget is passed on-time."
