Governor Andrew Cuomo has just delivered his State of the State Address and unveiled his Executive Budget proposal, marking the official start of the 2016-17 State Budget negotiation process.
As your Senator, I will be working tirelessly throughout the budget process to ensure that the final plan we adopt reflects the key priorities, goals and aspirations of families, senior citizens, young New Yorkers and small business owners throughout our community.
From helping to create new job opportunities, to reducing the tax burden on hardworking New Yorkers, to ensuring that we get our fair share of state school aid, I will be working to ensure that the final budget we enact will be an outstanding budget for our community.
To help keep you well-informed on budget-related developments going forward, I have provided link to a State Budget informational page on my web site. The page allows you to review specific details of the Governor’s proposal, and will also keep you posted on new developments related to the budget review and negotiation process. It also allows you to share your views on the budget, and to let me know what issues are important to you, your family, and our local community. As always, I truly appreciate your input and feedback.

I look forward to speaking with and listening to all of my constituents about their needs, concerns and priorities as we review the Governor’s plan and put together a final State Budget for 2016-17.
By working together, I am confident that we can develop and enact a soundly-balanced plan that helps to ensure a bright future for our community.
