Dear Members,

Today, New York State passed its fourth consecutive on-time balanced budget, for the first time in more than 40 years since Gov. Nelson Rockefeller, Assembly Speaker Perry Duryea, and Majority Leader Earl Brydges – proof that Albany’s legendary dysfunction and gridlock are a relic of the past. Truly a NY Budget Grand Slam, this budget builds on the State’s progress over the past three years in order to grow the economy and create new opportunities for New Yorkers and their families.

Governor Cuomo and legislative leaders sign the 2014-15 State Budget in the Red Room.

The 2014-15 State Budget maintains the fiscal discipline that has characterized the last three years of progress by holding the growth in spending below two percent, while also making broad tax cuts that will help homeowners and businesses thrive. It also contains targeted investments that will transform our schools, ensure safer, cleaner, and fairer communities, and restore the public’s trust in government.

This budget contains the framework that will allow us to build a new New York. I commend Senate Majority Coalition Co-Leaders Dean Skelos and Jeff Klein, Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver, and the members of the State and the Assembly who have joined us to continue that progress. We invite you to learn more about the 2014-15 State Budget at www.governor.ny.gov.
