Governor Andrew M. Cuomo’s Budget Vetoes

Dear New Yorkers,

Thanks to the tough choices and the historic reforms we achieved last year, we are able to propose a pro-growth budget without broad cuts or new taxes, fees or borrowing. Our stronger fiscal position now allows us to tackle long overdue pension reform and mandate relief that will lower the cost of government, drive accountability in our schools to put students first, and leverage tens of billions of dollars of new private sector investment to create jobs without significant cost to the taxpayer.

Through fiscal discipline and working in partnership with the private sector, we are strengthening our economy to create jobs and secure our state’s future. This budget represents the next step in our plan to transform New York State.

-Governor Andrew M Cuomo
