Republican lawmakers to unveil budget priorities for NY

NY Capitol News

Republican members of the New York state Assembly are poised to unveil their ideas for the state budget — though it remains to be seen whether the Assembly’s Democratic majority will take them to heart.

Assembly Minority Leader Brian Kolb is scheduled to release his conference’s budget priorities on Wednesday.

Republicans say their wish-list for the budget aims to make taxpayer money work better for the taxpayer.

The suggestions come as lawmakers work to approve a new state budget by an April 1 deadline.

Democrats control of the Assembly, Senate and governor’s office this year for the first time in a decade, giving them significant control over the state budget process.
