Schuyler Center’s Next Look at the New York State 2021-22 Budget: Senate and Assembly One-House Budget Proposals as they Intersect with Schuyler Center’s Most Urgent Budget Priorities
Read Schuyler Center’s Next Look at the NYS 2021-22 Budget: Senate and Assembly One-House Budget Proposals as they Intersect with Schuyler Center’s Most Urgent Budget Priorities. In February, the Schuyler Center shared its First Look at Governor Cuomo’s 2021-22 Executive Budget with our assessment of how it advances policies that improve the health and well-being of all New Yorkers, especially low-income children and families.
Schuyler Center’s First Look at the New York State 2021-22 Executive Budget as It Intersects with Our Policy Priorities
Schuyler Center’s First Look is an initial assessment of New York State’s 2021-22 proposed Executive Budget and how it advances priorities that improve the health and well-being of all New Yorkers, especially those living in poverty. While this Executive Budget contains some important proposals and new investments, it is not a budget that puts children and families and low-income New Yorkers first. Schuyler Center staff will spend the coming days and weeks gaining a deeper understanding of the Executive Budget and its impacts, and working to achieve a final State budget that prioritizes investing in children and families, advancing racial justice, and reducing poverty and inequality.
