State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli Statement on Gov. Cuomo's Executive Budget Proposal

January 19, 2021

“Gov. Cuomo put forward a state budget proposal during one of the most difficult times faced by our state. The pandemic is far from over, and it continues to have damaging effects on our revenues and spending. While our state economy has improved, state tax receipts are still $2.5 billion below the same point last year.

“As the Governor pointed out, without federal action communities around the state may face devastating cuts with serious consequences for New Yorkers. I am encouraged by the incoming Biden-Harris administration’s plan to provide additional help for state and local governments, but we need this aid soon.

“My office will release a more detailed analysis of the budget proposal in the coming days.”
