Smullen: Enough is Enough—It is Time to Pass the State Budget

A Statement from Assemblyman Robert Smullen (R,C-Mohawk Valley and the Adirondacks) in response to session scheduled for Sunday, April 7, 2024, to pass a third budget extender bill.

“It’s time to pass the budget—why we are back in Albany on a Sunday to instead pass another emergency budget extender is ridiculous. This lack of planning is not what New York families want to see, especially when they were hoping to see the state budget passed nearly a week ago. Returning to Albany just to pass another extender is simply a waste of taxpayer dollars. I hope this is the last extender we see so the budget can be finalized and we can start directing those dollars where they need to go.”
