New York’s Fiscal Year 2020 Budget
The Governor has signed a state budget for the 2020 fiscal year that builds, he says, on his “Justice Agenda”, achieving progressive reforms while fighting back against federal “threats”. The budget makes Affordable Care Act (ACA) requirements permanent in New York, bans single-use plastic bags, make the property tax cap permanent, establishes “congestion pricing” in downtown Manhattan, makes various criminal justice reforms, and many other things. Highlights from the Governor’s office are available HERE. To read the budget documents themselves, click HERE.
Governor Unveils “Justice Agenda” for 2019 Session
Governor Cuomo has announced a 20-point progressive agenda for the first 100 days of the legislative session, preempting his own State of the State address in order, he said, to give the legislature maximum time to consider his proposals. He asserted that his “Justice Agenda”, as he calls it, would make New York independent from federal initiatives and represented a 21st-century New Deal, akin to the reforms of F.D.R. Cuomo’s wish list addresses tax, healthcare, immigration, education, infrastructure, climate change, gun control, and other items, as well as legalized marijuana. Details are available HERE.
