Norris on the 2024 Executive Budget Proposal

A Statement from Assemblyman Mike Norris (R,C-Lockport)

“With a projected $4.3 billion budget deficit and future deficits on the horizon, it is fiscally irresponsible for the governor to be proposing any increase in spending, especially doubling the $1 billion spent last year on the illegal alien crisis to $1.9 billion. It is further frustrating she’s doing so at the cost of our children’s education. New York families should not be paying the penalty for the lack of judgment and foresight of progressive political agendas. It is incumbent on the state to get back to the basics on key infrastructure, education and workforce development investments, while reducing wasteful spending, taxes and business regulations that continue to fuel the outmigration population exodus to other states.
