Some state lawmakers are rejecting Governor Cuomo’s budget proposal to extend a tax on millionaires. The spending plan was outlined to some lawmakers at a lunch at the governor’s mansion, but won’t be available to the public until later Tuesday.
Governor Cuomo is dues to release his budget on Tuesday, and agencies that work with the intellectually disabled are among those hoping for more funds. They say they need help in order to pay their workers the new, higher minimum wage.
Governor Cuomo saved his ethics proposals for his last stop of his State of the State tour, in Albany, where he released a 10-point plan to address rampant corruption that has reached his own administration.
