Senate Republican Leader Dean G. Skelos Budget Statement

March 31, 2014

I’m happy to report that the state senate just finished passing a fiscally responsible, on-time state budget.  Working in a bi-partisan manner, this budget provides property tax relief to middle-class families, provides $1 billion in additional aid to schools, including over $600 million to close the Gap Elimination Adjustment, and provides a strong foundation to create jobs and provide every New Yorker with the opportunities they need to be successful. Please take a brief minute to watch my remarks on this years budget.
