Where We Stand: New York State Budget

The New York State Budget is so much more than dollars and cents. While it does direct spending over the next fiscal year, the state budget is also typically teeming with policy—legislation that impacts New York’s employers and taxpayers every single day. That is why the Buffalo Niagara Partnership is so actively engaged in state budget advocacy, making sure state leaders and Western New York’s senators and assembly members know what we support and what we oppose.

There are just a handful of weeks left until the State Legislature wraps up the 2016 session and leaves Albany behind for another year. The end of session crunch is typically defined by heavy legislative activity, but there are strong indications this year’s session may wind down with little fanfare. Whether a little or a lot gets done over the next month, the Buffalo Niagara Partnership and our allies are making sure state legislators know what is important to New York’s employers.
