Our 2013-2014 New York State Budget Propsal

By Assemblyman Luis Sepulveda 87th A.D.

I am happy to announce that my colleagues and I in the New York State Assembly have passed a 2013-14 state budget proposal that would:
  • Increased education funding
  • Spur job growth
  • Provide economic relief for local governments
  • Protect vital programs that assist New York's most vulnerable residents 
We accomplished this all while managing to close a $1.35 billion (yes, "billion" with a "b") budget gap. The Assembly budget proposal also establishes a considerable reserve to help protect against future budget deficits.
I am proud that I took part in crafting a fiscally sound budget that generally aligns with the governor’s proposal and makes crucial investments in the types of programs and services that hardworking Bronx families rely upon--as an advocate for Bronxites from all walks of life, it was my mission to ensure that our interests were accounted for. As a collective body, we are confident that our budget proposal, if adopted, would ensure that our great state remains economically competitive, while maintaining a sustainable balance between expenditures and revenue.
