"The April 1 deadline for a new state budget is in approximately one week. At that time, the Legislature will pass -- or fail to pass -- the budget that Governor Cuomo proposed.
The Governor’s budget closes a $10 billion deficit with no new taxes, cuts waste and inefficiency, and ensures that the government will finally tighten its belt – just like every family in this state has had to do.
Today Governor Cuomo released a video to New Yorkers about his commitment to deliver a budget that makes this government work for the people once again.
As Governor Cuomo makes clear in this message, now is our chance to turn this state around and build a new future for all New Yorkers.
Remember to visit Governor Cuomo on Facebook, where you can post your thoughts and ideas about the budget and receive regular updates on the actions of the Governor."
