Senator Helming Statement on Governor’s Executive Budget Proposal

"The Governor has proposed a budget that pushes state spending to a new record-setting level at a time when many New Yorkers are struggling to make ends meet. This budget grows state government, places more mandates on local businesses and provides little relief to working families and seniors.  We can do better and we must do better. As the budget process continues, I will be working with my colleagues in the Legislature to make our state a more affordable and safer place where people want to live."
