State of the State and Budget Messages

Commissioner/CEO Towns has been bringing details of the Executive Budget Proposal for 2013-14 and Governor Cuomo’s new initiatives directly to communities at town hall meetings, open forums, and similar events around New York.

Commissioner/CEO Towns said, “Governor Cuomo recently unveiled a budget proposal that builds on two years of fiscal responsibility and economic growth, and he outlined some exciting new initiatives in his State of the State address that will continue moving New York forward and making the State a national model for effective government.  It’s important to provide an opportunity for people to learn more about the Governor’s agenda in an environment where they can ask questions and express their ideas, and that’s what these meetings are all about.”

The Governor’s agenda includes a proposal designed to help meet the critical need for housing by investing an additional $1 billion into creating and preserving more than 14,000 affordable homes throughout the State.
