April 2, 2015: Elizabeth Lynam, Karen Scharff, Rick Timbs

The good, the bad, and the ugly of the budget.

Elizabeth Lynam, the Vice President and Director of State Studies of the Citizens Budget Commission, explains how well the budget maintained fiscal discipline, provided for school aid, and outlined economic development.

Karen Scharff, the Co-Chair of the Working Families Party, is not a fan of the budget, particularly because a minimum wage hike was left by the wayside.

The education funding in the budget is nuanced. Who better to explain the gritty details than Rick Timbs, the Executive Director of the Statewide School Finance Consortium?
