Jensen: 2024 Budget Lacks Spending Restraint in The Right Places

A statement from Assemblyman Josh Jensen (R,C-Greece)following Gov. Hochul’s state budget presentation.

“Today, in her budget proposal, the governor proposed a record New York state budget. While families are struggling with their own finances, this proposal would see our state’s obligation increase by $6 billion. While we must prioritize and fund services New Yorkers need, we should be ensuring our state’s fiscal health by using taxpayer dollars in the most effective and efficient method possible, while securing our fiscal future. We cannot continue to ask families and businesses for more and more. I look forward to giving the budget proposal strict scrutiny during the upcoming legislation budget hearings and process.”
