Not Your Normal New York Budget Presentation

New York State lawmakers are trying to digest just what Governor Andrew Cuomo wants to do with the state’s finances in the coming year after the Democrat again broke from tradition, releasing individual spending briefings instead of delivering a full budget message to the legislature.

That comes on the heels of Cuomo’s six-stop tour around the state to deliver separate State of the State messages instead of a speech to the State Legislature.

The Governor says the state looks to spend $152.3 billion, retaining higher taxes on the wealthy while giving an income tax cut for the middle class and increasing spending for schools.

The Democrat is also calling for an expanded child care tax credit and allowing ride-sharing services like Lyft and Uber to expand throughout the state instead of being confined to New York City.

The state’s fiscal year begins April 1st.
