The New York State Senate has passed legislation that completely abolishes the Gap Elimination Adjustment (GEA) this year.  Nearly $434 million in GEA cuts remain for schools in 2016-17.  

Senator Michael Ranzenhofer voted in favor of the bill.

“One of the top priorities for this Legislative Session is to get rid of the GEA budgets cuts.  I am proud to support the Senate-approved legislation as the first order of business.  It’s time for the Assembly Democrats to join with us,” said Ranzenhofer.
