Blumencranz: State Budget Negotiations Must Resume so New Yorkers Know we have Their Backs

A Statement from Assemblyman Jake Blumencranz (R,C-Oyster Bay)

“I know I speak for many of the other members of the Assembly Minority Conference when I say it’s time for this state budget to be finished. It’s been nearly a month, and the budget is still on hold. We have not seen this level of delay in state budget proceedings in over a decade—it’s unacceptable and gives reason for so many New Yorkers’ decision to leave the state. Families are looking for financial stability and security, and many feel neglected by this late budget shrouded in mystery. To prevent further exodus of constituents and maintain their faith in state lawmakers, we need to finish up this budget and provide financial support to those who need it.”
