After Years of Overspending, The Bill is Coming Due

A Statement by Assemblyman Ed Ra (R-Franklin Square) on Gov. Kathy Hochul’s FY 2025 Executive Budget Presentation in the New York State Capitol on Tuesday, Jan. 16, 2024.

“New York must confront the reality of prolonged fiscal recklessness, and we must make sure our revenues and spending are in equilibrium. I look forward to the budget hearing process as we work to craft a final budget that funds essential services while also ensuring our spending is sustainable without tax increases or gimmicks—a resolute stand for fiscal responsibility is urgent.”
