Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli, whose relationship with Gov. Andrew Cuomo is notably rocky, said he liked the budget presentation given this afternoon “at first glance.”
Here’s the full statement:
For the past four years, I’ve said the state needs a budget that aligns recurring revenues with recurring spending. At first glance, it appears the Governor has proposed a budget that does just that.
There are two main concerns: achieving budget balance while continuing to provide essential services that millions of New Yorkers rely on.
My office will be analyzing the specifics of the budget proposal to determine its impact on local governments, school districts and other service providers that depend on state funding.
