Capitol Pressroom

April 1, 2015: Tim Kremer and Bob Lowry, Merryl Tisch, Gov. Cuomo, Larry Levy

The NYS budget was passed late Tuesday night. Today’s show features reaction to the items included, as well as the budget process, from stakeholders and analysts.

First, Bob Lowry, Deputy Director of the New York State Council of School Superintendents, and Tim Kremer, Executive Director of the New York State School Boards Association, look at the teacher evaluation proposal included in the budget.

Then, Regents Chancellor Merryl Tisch responds to NYSUT President Karen Magee’s call for parents to opt their children out of state tests.

At 11:30, Gov. Andrew Cuomo discusses the final budget.

Hoftsra University’s Executive Dean at the National Center for Suburban Studies Larry Levy looks at the irony that the Governor’s success in pushing for on-time budgets might have reduced his leverage for what legislation he could get passed in the budget.
