Cuomo budget looks at universal pre-k and cutting taxes

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo released his state budget  on Tuesday. The $137.2 billion spending plan includes more money for schools , including a phase-in of funding for universal pre-kindergarten programs. It would also freeze property taxes for two years, if local governments cooperate.
