“Governor Cuomo presented a budget today that took a hard look at the serious fiscal problems currently facing New York State. His message was sobering, but not unrealistic.
“The Governor presented an aggressive approach at dealing with the harsh economic climate we currently face. In the coming weeks, we will closely examine the Governor’s proposals. We will take a particularly close look at any proposals that disproportionately affect New York City, such as revenue sharing, and will advocate that New York City is not treated unfairly in comparison to other municipalities across the state. We look forward to working with the Governor and our partners in state government in tackling the difficult fiscal year ahead.”
