January 18, 2017
Gov. Cuomo outlined his $152.3 billion budget proposals yesterday, which call for the extension of the Millionaires tax, an increase of $1 billion in school aid, and investment in infrastructure. He first briefed lawmakers on the budget in closed-door meetings before releasing the details publicly in an evening press conference. Today, Ron Deutsch, the executive director of the Fiscal Policy Institute, and David Friedfel, the director of State Studies for the Citizens Budget Commission, shared two perspectives on the proposals.
We also heard from Heather Briccetti, President and CEO of the Business Council, on how the budget proposals line up with the Council’s priorities for the year.
Susan Arbetter sat down with Syracuse Mayor Stephanie Miner, Fordham Law Professor Zephyr Teachout, and Common Cause Executive Director Susan Lerner to discuss election and contracting reforms for New York.
We hosted Bruce Gyory of Manatt, Phelps & Phillips on the budget proposals and where public opinion stands on President-elect Trump right before the inauguration.◄ Back to PodCasts
