Butler: Budget Will Mean Big Changes

Statement from Assemblyman Marc Butler (R,C,I-Newport) on Governor Cuomo’s Executive Budget Proposal
February 1, 2011

“Today marks the beginning of an arduous process of enacting a state budget, and Governor Cuomo’s Executive Budget proposal is putting spending reductions at the forefront of the discussion. There is no question that this budget is stark on spending, but New York can no longer maintain the spendthrift habits it developed in the 90s, when our economy was stronger and revenue was more abundant. I am ready to examine the details of the budget and to make sure that spending cuts aren’t made at the expense of families and businesses in my district.”
