As I have shared in weeks past, the state budget was passed earlier this month, and within that budget, there is a provision that allows for the Governor to develop a plan for spending cuts if the federal government cuts $850 million or more of funding to New York State. If this were to happen, the Governor’s plan would go into effect unless the Assembly and Senate provide an alternative plan within 90 days.
In light of this possibility, I am hosting a town hall meeting on May 10th with New York City Comptroller, Scott Stringer to discuss the Federal Budget and the potential impact that President Trump’s cuts could have on our state and city budgets. Comptroller Stringer has been an outspoken critic of the Trump administration’s policies and as the Chief Financial Officer of the City of New York, he is an expert on budgetary issues and how the federal cuts could impact us here in New York.
I hope that you are able to join us to make your concerns known and to participate in the conversation. Please find full details below and RSVP by calling 718 788 -7221 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
